    Great in the short run

    Comments about Dean Markley 2033 TLT Blue Steel Cryogenic Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    My Yamaha FG730S is a guitar that despite what I had paid, always sounds like it is worth no less than the three times the price, quite phenomenal. I have been trying many strings. I bought these Blue Steels and thought I would give them a shot because I like a heavy, bluesy sound. I have to say, in the first 24 hours my guitar sounded amazing! Seriously loud, with basses that could bring down a house and highs that where smooth and not too bright. Long long sustain. Sounded like an amped up Martin. But, after the first day, I already saw some corrosion and the sound faded. now (4 days after) it sound OK, not bad and not special. So, no truth behind the "extended life" statement. So, I would buy them again for a one time live performance and then replace them a few days after.

    Play them till they're stiff!

    Comments about Dean Markley 2033 TLT Blue Steel Cryogenic Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    These strings have amazing sound on my Ovation. They keep this amazing tone until they are too stiff too fret. The TLT's are a very close diameter match to the Adamas 1818's that came on my Ovation, but the sound of these will blow you away! I have used about a dozen sets of these, and the quality is very consistent.

    Blue Steel TLT 2033 Acoustic Strings

    Comments about Dean Markley 2033 TLT Blue Steel Cryogenic Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I used to play electric guitar alot, but haven't played much in the last 10 years. I recently picked up a Skylark acoustic steel string guitar. It's a very good quality but inexpensive Chinese guitar. The factory strings sounded good, but I wanted something easier on my fingers. I did some research on the web and saw the Blue Steel strings. I wanted some light gauge strings to make my acoustic feel like the electric guitars that I was used to playing. I didn't want to give up the low tone, so I went with the Blue Steel TLT 2033 strings. I was first impressed by the quality of the metal in these strings. The cryo treatment definetly hardens the metal and will probably contribute to longer life. These strings also hold a tune very well. On the down side, the hardened steel makes even light gauge strings hard to play. Even the .011 E string hurt my fingers. These strings were even stiffer than the cheap factory strings that came with my guitar. The low tones weren't as good as the factory strings either. After about 2 weeks, I took off the Blue Steel's and put the factory strings back on. Now my fingers are alot less sore. These Blue Steel strings did not accomplish my goal of making the acoustic guitar feel more like an electric.
