    Just got my new pack of Aurora strings in red, and theyre amazing. Ive noticed not a lot of people talk bout them (or maybe i've just missed them) but they're great. They're very bright, they sound great for slap, and they look amazing :D.

    While I like to keep my bass string made in NJ (yes Steve and Mark) I also use Auroras. I use the white ones. They really do sing.

    For many years Aurora supplied DR with their coated strings. So all good.

    I am really thinking about putting gold ones on my Spector Shorty and on my Black 84 Guild Pilot, red on my Gibson 20/20 and when it's fixed, Nitro Orange on my Sparkle Orange Vaccaro X-Ray.

    Are they coated? How long does the color last?
    I tried DR neons but I play with a pick and the coating started to come off after a couple of weeks.

    Yes they are coated strings. The coating will come off if you use a pick, like I do too, but I have noticed the aurora coating lasts longer.

    The tension, to me atleast, feels softer than the DR Neons they replaced but not by much. The B sounds good and doesn't seem floppy or anything. Just my two pennies though.
