Blue Steel are the world's first and finest Cryogenic-processed strings. Blue Steel strings are a total breakthrough in string technology. Starting with the very finest quality materials, Blue Steel strings are frozen to minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit, held there for an exact period of time and then slowly and carefully brought back to their original temperature. This unique Cryogenic treatment realigns the molecular structure of the string, giving Blue Steel more highs and lows, a longer life and greater ability to stay in tune.
That's right, this is the one everyone's been talking about. It's simply amazing what a little -320º liquid nitrogen can do to a guitar string. If I were you, I'd put on a set and see what all the noise is about. Twice the tone and twice the life.
Q: What makes Blue Steel strings different than your other strings?
A: Blue Steel strings are cryogenically treated to give them a longer life, great tone and the ability to stay in tune better than other strings. While some artists play Blue Steel strings exclusively, other players feel more comfortable with untreated strings. We advise everyone to try Blue Steel strings to see if they are the string for you.
Q: Is there a chance Blue Steel guitar strings would wear down my frets faster than other strings?
A: No, Blue Steel strings will not wear down your frets any faster than any other standard string available on the market today.
Q: Is there really a Dean Markley?
A: Yes. Dean has been a force in the music industry for over 25 years, and although he dedicates much of his time to his home, family, horses, and rabbits, he still is very active in product development and planning for the future of Dean Markley Strings, Inc.
