Dean Markley Seven (7) String Guitar Strings
Dean Markley has been raising the bar for superior quality electric guitar strings since the 1970s. Notable artists who sing their praises include Supertramp guitarist Carl Verheyen and bassist Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue. The difference is in the expert craftsmanship and attention to detail. We are proud to offer the often difficult to find Dean Markley seven string guitar strings with different custom gauges in two of their top lines. The first strings they ever made were their NickelSteel Electric, and they remain a tried-and-true classic today. Made with nickel-plated steel that is wound by hand over a round core, the strings provide a warm and full classic rock sound with long sustain. Guitarists around the world have put these Dean Markley NickelSteel strings at the top of their list of best-sellers every year. The L.T.H.B. (Light Top Heavy Bottom) variety is valued by those players who enjoy the combination of a more flexible lighter gauge for bending with the heavier gauge for a thicker tone with greater sustain. These strings are also recommended for low tuning. For those interested in an especially long-lasting string that benefits from the latest technological advancements, we have the Dean Markley Blue Steel series. The strings in these sets are cryogenically treated, which reduces the temperature of the metal to an extremely low level with liquid nitrogen. This results in a much stronger string that is far less prone to breakage. Strings treated with this process will also maintain their tuning longer than untreated strings. As with the NickelSteel Electric strings, the Dean Markley Blue Steel strings are available in Light, Custom Light, Regular, L.T.H.B. and Medium varieties. The gauges in these different sets range from .009 to .060, for different sounds, styles of playing and personal preferences. All strings come in individual envelopes to prevent tarnish and degradation. These Dean Markley strings will give you a great sound for a long time.
