The Cryogenic Process

 

Cryogenics is the science of treating materials by exposing them to extreme low temperatures. All the electric guitar and bass strings in the Adamas EX series are treated with cryogenics. The strings are submerged in liquid nitrogen until the temperature reaches a minus 318 degrees Fahrenheit. They are held at that temperature for fifteen hours then slowly brought back to room temperature. The entire process takes 38 hours to complete. The result is a crystalline change in the metal, which reduces residual stress created in the manufacturing of the wire and the string.

 

The string is now more stable and does not experience as great a degree of change in the overall tension as the string is stretched during tuning and playing. This helps the string hold its tune or pitch, since a major reason for a string to lose its ring or "go dead" is because it loses its ability to stretch or its "elasticity". The Cryogenic process increases the useful life of the string by helping it hold its tone and brilliance longer.
