Re: Coloured Strings
I've reviewed these, and the DR Neons on my blog. The Auroras are probably the better of the two, for both colour coating and tone.
The Aurora coating is an enamel, and feels more like a metal string than the DRs, and I'd say they held up longer too.
The colour wont last a great deal of time where you pick, especially if you are a heavy handed rhythm picker like me. I shredded the colour off the low 3 strings over the pickups in a 3 hour writing session with my band. The tone was still good though.
