Product Reviews for Dean Markley Banjo 5 String Medium, .011 - .026, 2306

Dean Markley Banjo 5 String Medium, .011 - .026, 23065AradobanjoJuly 23, 2010Dean Markley strings are exclusively used on a 1985 Saga GF-100 banjo for over 20 years. Mediums are used for recording when tightness is required. Medium lights are for practicing. These strings last many practicing and group sessions. 8 months of heavy use and two years casual use where strings do not break, discolor or loose tone are testimony of a solid string. This is why Dean Markley strings are used on a 1985 Saga GF-100. The tones produced with any string are dependent on temperature, humidity, head tightness, bridge and drum composition. Leaving strings on for a few minutes is not a review.

DEAN MARKLEY STRINGS

"World renowned for their rich tones, long life and consistency from set to set, Dean Markley strings are the finest strings on the market today. Exacting attention to detail of manufacturing places Dean Markley strings at the leading edge of string technology. Today's top professionals rely on Dean Markley strings to deliver the brilliant, rich, full tones they need combined with an extremely long life. Dean Markley strings are always there when you need them. They deliver.

THE PLAIN STRINGS: Dean Markley strings feature specially made and plain strings which won't slip or unravel. To achieve this, we use a unique "triple-lock" twist to attach a special "tuned" bead to the finest Swedish Steel tinned mandolin wire available. This gives you a string which is brilliant, has an extremely long life and holds its tone much longer than other strings.

THE WOUND STRINGS: Because the core wire is the foundation of all wound strings, Dean Markley uses the highest quality Swedish Steel core wire available. Dean Markley wound strings feature a hexagon shaped core wire which prevents unraveling and assures a super-tight bond between the core wire and the outer wrap. This gives Dean Markley wound strings their characteristic brilliance, punch, full bottom end, fantastic harmonics, plus an extremely long life. The core wire also utilizes the "triple-lock" twist and "tuned" brass, nickel, or black anodized brass beads.

DEAN MARKLEY'S SPECIAL ALLOYS CREATE SPECIAL MAGIC: For the outer wrap on Dean Markley strings, we formulated special alloys for each of the different strings, such as nickel plated steel, 430 stainless steel, 85/15 bronze, 80/20 bronze, phosphorus bronze and our proprietary Cryogenic processed Blue SteelÔ alloys. These special alloys are formulated to balance the overall sound of your instrument and bring out the high end as well as the low end harmonics, making your instrument sound fuller and richer, with just the right brilliance. Because of the special formulations, these alloys can take a real beating and still keep their original tone longer than other strings. Like it says on the packages: "Super Brilliance and Longer Life".

It could be Dean's special alloys, the core-to-wrap ratios, or the love and care that goes into the making of every set whatever the reason, the magic of Dean Markley strings has to be experienced to be believed.

Dean Markley strings are available in all the popular gauges of Acoustic, Electric, Bass, Classical, Ball End Nylon, Banjo, Mandolin, Twelve String Electric and Steel Guitar, as well as a complete line of singles. If you're not already one of the thousands of players using Dean Markley strings, give 'em a try. Dean Markley has just the string for you."
