Like everyone else I've always searched for the bass strings that would do it for me, and I have spent hundreds doing it. You know...trying to find a string that will give you the sound in your head that you constantly look for. I play all Fender's Jazz 5's. On my American Deluxes I use LaBella Super Steps which I consider a match made in heaven but with my American Standard 5 something was just missing. The standard 5 is just a different animal than the deluxes yet there is something I really love about it. I think it's just more of an old school sound. I put some of these SR 2000's on my standard 5 a year ago and my search came to an end. These sound the way Roto's used to sound back in the 70's. These scream. Tight...focused and piano like clarity. The "B" string is OMG! I was amazed how little of a change in setup I had to make in order to use these but it was so worth it. Now when it comes to my American Standard 5 I'd use nothing else. That search is finally over. These last also! Great string!

I love Dean Markley SR 2000 strings. There is a clarity and zing I get out of these strings that I do not get out of any other string.

I use them on all my basses and it sounds perfect on any bass I have heard.

Here's what I texted to a pro bass player friend: "I gotta tell ya... I just put on these DM SR2000 strings. I luv em. For ss strings, they're not too bright, but the punch u get when u dig in, finger style, is "bolder" than with the Boomers or the Elixirs. And the tone is more to my liking. When I roll the mid freq control (Ibanez BTB) I can get some really nice tones. Power, tone, tons of sustain... I'm stoked!"

"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."
