What Are DR Neon White Bass Guitar Strings with K3 long-life protection (patent pending)?
These are nickel plated Bass Strings wound on Round Cores with DR's patent pending K3 long-life coating in Hi-Def white.
NEON's are part of DR's SuperStrings series. Super bright in day light and with stage lighting. DR's NEON strings are so bright in appearance "they look like they are on fire." DR's NEON strings shine brightly under stage lights, and are 100% black light active so they glow strongly under UV lighting. And DR's NEON strings sound as good as they look. As Joey Clemment from Salena Gomez said, "Yeah they look great, but they sound incredible!"
NEON is the first coated string to make NO apologies. While NEON™ lasts as long as a coated string should (three to four times as long as uncoated strings) they sound as good, or better than uncoated strings... no excuses.
How tough is the K3 protective coat?
The K3 coating is designed to provide superior life under normal playing conditions. The K3 coating is designed for use with standard picks, as well as fingers or fingertips. The K3 coating can be damaged by scraping against metal. Take care when stringing guitars and basses where the strings are passed through a metal block or bridge.
