been trying various brands of strings for 10 years now. DR, D'Addario, GHS Carvin, everly, etc. recently settled on Ernie Ball since the sound is better than the others that ive tried but they have way too much treble and wonky mids. this is even more pronounced the newer the strings are and doesnt really go away even when the strings are near the end of their life. Finally decided to try a set of Blue Steels after a talking to a local music store. These are the way to go if you want a very balanced sound. bass was present but not overly so, mids were strident but not wonky sounding and treble was subdued somewhat but very sweet. they last forever. i play for about 6 hours a week and they last about 1-2 months. Ive never heard my ibanez SZ sound so beautiful. if youve been searching for

I've been searching for a new favorite set of strings and tried these out. I am very disappointed with the tone. First off, they just don't have that new string high-end sparkle that you look forward to when changing strings. The low and high frequencies seem non-existant with my set. The worst problem of all is the way they make pinch harmonics very difficult. I can usually do pinches almost anywhere on my guitar but find myself fighting to pull them off in easy places. You're better off with D'Addario's or Ernie Ball's.

        Good strings . . . I use these on solid and hollow bodied guitars. Playing style is light to medium, mostly for studio work. Tone / tuning lasts a long time.

                    I've used these for over twenty years and have never had any reason to change. I've tried plenty of other brands but have never been as satisfied with them as I am with these.

                    my favorite strings, I use them all the time. I have tried other brands and none last as long or sound as good for as long.. they stay in tune great, too.

                    Used these forever. There is no other string like this. They are the crispest strings you can ever put on your guitar. I'm on the comeback road to playing & have gone through tones of other brand strings & none of them have made me happy.

                    Dean Markley BLue Steel Strings light 9-42

                    Comments about Dean Markley 2552 Blue Steel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

                    I have played Blue Steel's for over 20 years and every time I have tried other strings and I always go back to the best strings in the world! I own 2 double locking Floyd trems and have never had an issue with intonation between changes. I highly recomend these strings to any serious musician.

                    By far the best I've ever used

                    Comments about Dean Markley 2552 Blue Steel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

                    I have been playing Blue Steels for over 15 years now, and every time I restring with something else, I find that I'm disappointed. These strings have crystal clear tone and last 2-3 times as long as other strings for me. They play like butter. I highly recommend them.
