The DR Strings booth at NAMM displayed their popular NEON strings on several basses and guitars set against a black backdrop accented with UV lights – what an awesome display! Joining the display this summer in celebration of the Fourth of July, were DR Strings new NEON™ Red, White and Blue color coated guitar and bass string sets. What’s great about these new strings is that in coordination with legendary guitarist and DR Strings’ artist Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, 10% of the sales proceeds will benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF). In a recent press release, Baxter stated, “The SOWF guarantees a college education and/or support for sons and daughters of Special Forces parents who have fallen in the line of duty.”
The new strings are available in a wide variety of gauges for electric, acoustic and bass guitar. If you like the colors, but don’t want all three, solid color sets are also available.
DR’s NEON™ string line is designed to last 3-4 times longer than regular uncoated strings. NEON™ strings will not flake or deteriorate under normal use. Players will not sacrifice tone or genuine round wound feel with while playing on DR’s proprietary K3 coated guitar and bass strings.
