    The Brains:
    DR has started shipping their new Multi-Color set!

    They did not really provide much information on what the colors were, but now that I have the 4, 5, and 6 string sets in my hands I know what they are! Gamers are you ready?

    The new colors match the Rocksmith Game theme!

    The 4-String set is as follows:

    .105 = NEON Red
    .085 = NEON Yellow
    .065 = NEON Blue
    .045 = NEON Orange

    The 5-String Set:

    .125 = NEON Red
    .105 = NEON Yellow
    .085 = NEON Blue
    .065 = NEON Orange
    .045 = NEON Green

    The 6-String Set:

    .125 = NEON Red
    .105 = NEON Yellow
    .085 = NEON Blue
    .065 = NEON Orange
    .045 = NEON Green
    .030 = NEON Purple

    I was originally expecting some type of random colored set but we now have strings coded similar to Rocksmith gaming colors!

    That's pretty cool. They used to have a set of non neon multi colored strings for guitar that they sold as a learning tool. It came with a little booklet or sheet with lessons on it.

    I'd be tempted to jump on these, but after about 6 years of using DR coated strings, I'm ready for a different sound. I never liked the sound as much as Nickel Lo-Riders, so I'll probably go back to those.

    However, if they had a set that was orange, blue, yellow, and green, I might be swayed. I've never really like red.
