Product Description

Dean Markley Blue Steel Bass Guitar Strings
This is the Big One. The big cheese whiz. The dream maker. The problem solver. Brilliant Stainless Steel, Cryogenically processed electric string for two to three times the life of regular strings and a feel to die for. If you haven't - you should.

Dean Markley 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.

The Dean Markley Blue Steel Experience

It was an accident, really.

I was in the local music shop when I overheard someone asking the salesman if he knew of any bass players who were looking for a gig. Before I realized what I was saying, I had volunteered myself. It was at that point that I realized the guy asking the question was the frontman for the coolest band in town. I found myself stammering a response when he asked for my number, knowing that I was probably in over my head. This band was good, and I figured they’d never call me.

Still, I went home excited, and practiced more than usual. I wanted to make sure that if I got the chance, I wouldn’t embarrass myself. A few days went by, and I had all but given up hope, when the phone rang. My audition would be that evening.

I was hoping that the routine of changing strings would help settle my nerves, so I grabbed a set of Blue Steels. As I was working, I kept telling myself that if I kept things simple and solid, I could play with these guys. But the butterflies were as strong as ever. I was starting my deep-breathing exercises when the Blue Steel package caught my eye. The words “Cryogenic Activated” leaped out at me, and I thought that maybe if someone froze me, I’d be cool enough to pass this audition. And it was as simple as that. I pictured myself as cool as could be, and the nerves disappeared.

And when it was time for the audition, I was ready. A quick touch of the strings reminded me to keep cool, and then I just played in the pocket and let my tone speak for itself. And it must have been convincing, because I got the gig…

Dean Markley Blue Steel bass strings. Keep your cool.
