By now you probably know that Dean Markley’s ingenious Blue Steel strings are cryogenically frozen with a blast of liquid nitrogen. But why would we do such a thing? By freezing our strings down to -320-degree Fahrenheit, we tighten the molecules, minimizing microscopic gaps. This process removes transient frequencies that produce harsh highs and muddy lows, creating a more consistent string, with true tone and longer life. A method to our madness!
Made of 8 percent nickel-plated steel outer wrap on tinned Mandolin wire hex-core, Blue Steel strings have been top-sellers for years and are used by pros worldwide such as Yngwie Malmsteen, session bass player Will Lee, George Strait and his entire band, Joe Bonamassa, Mike Mushok with Staind, Phoenix with Linkin Park, Sarah McLachlan, Metallica, Korn, Fallout Boy, Toby Keith, Misfits, George Strait, Michael Anthony, Dick Dale, The Edge-U2, Avril Lavigne, Atreyu, Fishbone, Neil Young, Queens of The Stone Age.
Once you try Blue Steel strings you’ll be hooked. They feel great, ring true, are durable and long-lasting, and they just plain sound good.
