Cryogenically frozen to harvest the eternal powers of winter, Blue Steel has been engineered to last 2-5 times longer than lesser strings.

Sound: Great strings, from the very beginning. Bright and crisp tones from the moment I put them on to the day my G string snapped. Feature: The sound quality is downright amazing from day 1. When I slapped it, they sounded almost ripe, pure, and raw. These strings have phenomenal tones in them, and will last you a very long time. Quality: I've used Ernie Ball, D'addario, and Elixer strings for a good 2 years, but none of them could touch what Blue Steel is. These babies are top class, and are well worth the price. I can't even play other strings anymore. Blue Steel outclasses the rest! Value: Well worth the price. Overall: I have had no better strings then these. No other brands I have used have matched up to the quality and sound that the Blue Steels have produced. They give you the growls you need for heavy metal, yet are soft enough to give you the mellow and relaxed tone of jazz. No matter what type of bass you play, whether it be hard rock, heavy metal, jazz, classic rock, even funk, these strings will deliver what style you want, when you want it. Blue Steel's are the best string on the market today!

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.
