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 Steel 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.
