Dean Markley Blue Steel Electric Guitar Strings

Briefly frozen with liquid nitrogen, these strings offer incredibly superior tone and a longer life. It also helps keep the strings in tune.

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.

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.
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.
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.
Great Quality best sound long life couldn't ask for anything better.
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.
