BLUE STEEL. WHEN COLD IS HOT.

Dean Markley Blue Steel Cryogenically treated electric guitar strings.

Cryogenically treating strings has three keys benefits: longer tone-life, balanced & powerful tone, and increased durability.  The cryogenic process removes small particulate materials on the string which generally cause abrasive highs and muddiness in the low-mid range, which in turn allows the strings to vibrate more effectively, therefore increasing sustain and power.  This also has the side effect of effortless playability and great feel.

The winding is made of 8% nickel-plated steel which is then wrapped onto a tinned mandolin hex-core wire.

"It's true that our iconic BLUE STEEL strings endure a quick blast of liquid nitrogen.  But this chilling process just makes 'em warmer and more brilliant than ever.  Our proprietary Cryo-Tech processing re-aligns and re-organises the molecular structure in an almost magical way, resulting in a more reactive, longer-lasting string.  We're talking super brilliant tone with a full, tight bottom end and an extended life cycle that satisfies top players worldwide.  Try 'em and you'll see what we mean."

Dean Markley’s mission: “Doing it better all the time” just about says it all.  He began as a music store owner and moved forward into string making when other strings just weren’t good enough.  Dean Markley began selling his own experimental string designs in store and has now moved on to make some of the biggest and most popular advances in cryogenically frozen strings with the introduction of the Blue Steel range.  The most recent Dean Markley advance was with the Helix HD strings which use a Hyper-Elliptical Winding process combined with the greatest possible string mass to maintain the strings natural vibrancy.  They are fatter, brighter and last up to 5x longer than conventional strings!
