DR Strings Announces NEON Hi-Def White Luminescent Strings

New luminescent strings from DR Strings.

Emerson, NJ (June 19, 2013) -- DR Strings is proud to announce NEON™ Hi-Def WHITE guitar and bass string sets, which are White in color and UV and Black Light active. DR NEON™ Hi-Def WHITE strings are super bright coated strings that will sound clear, bright and musical as well as provide unparalleled string performance and longevity. All strings in the sets are completely protected and white in color.

Super bright in daylight and under stage lighting, DR’s NEON strings are so bright in appearance they look like they are on fire.

DR’s NEON Hi-Def WHITE strings are 100% black light active so they glow strongly under UV lighting.

DR’s K3 coating has been proven to last at least 9 times longer (by documented factory tests) than previous DR coatings. The new, durable K3™ coating will NOT strip away, peel or come off under any playing condition we have put it thorough in numerous, stressful factory tests.

NEON Hi-Def WHITE Strings are available in standard electric guitar 9-42, 10-46 and 11-50 sets. Acoustic guitar string sets come in 11-50 and 12-54 gauges. Bass strings in medium 4 string gauge (45-105) and 5 string gauge (45-125) will also be available.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
