They're awesome looking for the first week and then it becomes normal. This was the first DR strings I've used, but I'm going back to the Regular Slinkies by Ernie Ball. The strings just don't have the tone, maybe due to the coating? But I would rather pay $5 for a set of strings and have to change it more often than paying [$] for a set of strings I'm not satisfied with. They're cool for shows, but other than that, just a novelty.
