Customer Reviews

Immortal stringsI'm pretty neglectful; I don't change my strings frequently. Part of the reason is that these strings REFUSE to corrode. They get a little darker in areas of frequent skin contact, but it's nothing compared to other brands. The only other real physical indication that they need replacing is the tone getting mellower and less bright.Also, Jeff Buckley used these 5A great string, but a little overhyped.These strings have some good mid-range punch to them. But I find them pretty average (I would have given them 4 stars, but these are a great product. I just wasn't blown away by them). They require a fair bit of stretching (unlike DR or Rotosound) before they stay in tune, but they do intonate VERY well. I do, however, find that they tarnish rather quickly for my body chemistry (About an hour of playing I will start to see the tell-tale signs of tarnish. The only string that doesn't do this for me is DR strings). They don't have the sizzling high end of rotos, nor the deep low end of DR Tite-Fits. They fall right in the middle.I know this review seems pretty mixed. Don't get me wrong, these are a GREAT string. However, for me, I don't think they're replace my trusted DR and Rotosounds. I will probably by these again before D'addario, however (which has been my backup string for over a decade).5Great tone again and easy bendsI've been getting back into guitar and replaced my old tone-less strings with some Light Blue Steels. The comparison in tone is amazing, and with the lights I'm able to get my calluses going again without it hurting my fingers. I've always liked how long the cryo-frozen strings last and hold their tone, and definitely recommend the lights if you want to return to guitar after a while.5THE BEST TONE EVER from guitar stringsI am a professional guitarist who began way back in 1974 and these are the very best guitar strings I have had the pleasure of using. The tone is magnificent, they don't break, and are highly playable on 25.5" scale Fender Strats & Tele's. I've tried all the other brands - Ernie Ball Cobalt, Slinky's, Stainless steel, GHS BOOMERS, Fender super bullets - you name it and I have probably had it on one of my guitars. I highly recommend the Dean Markley Blue Steel Electric Guitar Strings.5Great strings on a 6, not so much on a 7.I love Dean Markley Blue Steels on my six string electrics so I thought I would give these a whirl on my Jackson JS22-7. I have put in Seymour Duncan pickups, a Nazgul / Sentient set, and a set of Planet Waves Locking Tuners, but the guitar is otherwise stock. I was looking to find a string that would give me good clarity and note separation with plenty of definition with a bit of high end sparkle without sacrificing the depth and low-end growl that a long scale seven string has. In other words, I was looking for the awesome tone I get from these on my six strings, but with the added depth of a seven. Unfortunately, these strings did not deliver. They wound up sounding thin and almost compressed with very little of the qualities that make these a great six string electric string. Their shrill nature just couldn't be EQ'd out no matter what rig I played them through nor how I tinkered with various pedals and effects. They sounded bad through my Marshall, through various dirt boxes into the Marshall, through an Eleven Rack and (Not surprisingly) through a Fender.Over the years I have seen some QC issues with Blue Steels, but in the hundreds of sets of strings I have gone through any manufacturer is going to have a few clinkers. The set I got may have been "That set", but they refused to stay in tune no matter what. After a week I yanked them off and continued my tone search.While I can't honestly say I would NOT recommend them, they didn't do it for me, hence my three-star rating.Much as I still love these strings on my sixes, they do not do it for me on my seven.3Different internal packaging on strings when I ordred two setsI just received my Light gauge Blue Steel strings which I have used for years and noticed that the plastic packaging on the inside of the cardboard sleeve is different between the two sets. I purchased two sets of strings from the same seller and am concerned that one of them could be counterfeit. Has anyone else experienced this? I would normally rate Blue Steel strings 5 stars but am cautious with these because of the packaging discrepancy.3Blue SteelIt's hard to go wrong with DM strings. They really are the best, especially in terms of how long they maintain clarity, resist corrosion, and for general indestructibility. Rarely do I change a set of these because one broke. I've had these strings on some guitars for more than a year without any breaks or rust. Does the cryogenic freezing treatment have anything to do with that? I have no idea, but they're doing something right. If nothing else, it's a great marketing gimmick!5I had tuning issuesWhen I put these on I loved the feel of them. They feel solid and strong. They also feel more smooth than most other strings.However, after using these for about 3-4 months now (not the same set, obviously) I have noticed they are out of tune frequently. At first I thought maybe it was just a fluke but on my guitars they definitely do not stay in tune. To see if I was crazy because of all of the great reviews I did an experiment and I put new on one guitar and some EB slinky on another and then switched them up and regardless of the guitar they did hold tune nearly as good as the EB. I have switched back to EB. Not that it should matter but I know some may dismiss as a guitar issue I have a LP standard and an LP 60s tribute and have never had this issue, other than the common G string on LPs.3... "89" and I have to say they are the best string on the marketI have used Blue Steel strings since "89" and I have to say they are the best string on the market. They do not tarnish, the windings to not break even after repeated bending all night long. they seem to stay it tune longer...I have never experienced a "dead string" nor have I encountered any flaws in workmanship or factory defects.Thank you , Dean Markey5The heavies are heavier than mostNot quite the brightness that I like but, these guys articulate well and give a solid tone. I play mostly a Rock genre music. Say, ranging form a jangly Television sound to something awash with distortion. When I get really distorted, these guys let the sound get muddy. Now, distortion already tends to make things muddy and these strings just didn't have the ability to rise above it. I do like them for most other types of playing. The Blue Steels sound full and have a nice broad tone quality except at the very top end of brightness. They are definitely worth a try if you're experimenting. I've had no problems with durability and duration of usefulness. Good luck!5
