Product Description

That's right, this is the one everyone's been talking about. It's simply amazing what a little -320 degrees 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.

Blue Steel strings 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. Blue Steel strings are available for acoustic, electric, and electric bass guitars, and come in all popular gauges.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (51 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Glad I found the Blue Steel strings"
Sound: Ever Since I first saw the Blue Steel strings in a local music shop for my acoustic I switched to only use the Blue steels for all my guitars. The sound is crisp and sounds great plugged in or unplugged. Feature: They last forever seems like they are smooth too. They strings are just comfortable. Ease of Use: As far as strings go you don't need to change them often and also I haven't broken many of these strings. Quality: Great Quality best sound long life couldn't ask for anything better. Value: Value for the strings is exceptional I would expect to pay more and these strings and the price has never gone up as far as I can recall. Overall: I am happy to find these strings here been searching since the local shop near me closed down. I went to one shop today because i need to change out a set and the guy behind the counter never heard of them.
Style of Music: Blues, Classic rock

Dean Markley Blue Steel Customer Review
Sound: Great Strings. Sound Crisp but not harsh, and have a bit of edge to them. Quality: Got them 3 1/2 weeks ago, but they sound just like the day after i got them. Value: cosidering before i got these, i was going through a pack of regular slinky's every 2 weeks, and they sound like doo after the first 3 days. And these sound good as new and ive had them for almost 4 weeks, yeah I'd say its a deal. Saved me 2 dollars over the slinkys in the past month. Overall: great strings, go get some. Made my cheap Peavey Raptor plus sound $100 more expensive.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
