These are really amazing strings. I would say that they are the compromise between D'addario Nickels and Rotosound Satinless Steel strings like the RS66LD. Nice heavier medium gauge that doesn't wreck your neck. The strings are not as coarse and rough on the fingers like most stainless steel, and they are not clanky at all like other SS string. A+++ Thing Rotosound crunch, smooth feel, defined but not thin sounding, and average to better life.
Cloth windings are a nice touch.
Great and I have been gigging the same set for awhile.
Not the cheapest, but a little less than the average string

Good strings, last longer than most other brands i've used, but for some strange reason i can NOT get used to the feel of these strings. Also, since they are much brighter than most other brands I used (predominantly D'Addario), they do not work for people that like to remove their "tone-pots" ;)

Comments about Dean Markley 2676 Blue Steel Cryogenic Medium Bass Strings:

These strings have the best tone I?ve ever heard, I used to use Ernie balls but they have bad tone and low life, so now I use dean Markley blue steels

Brightest bass stings on the market

By Bassdude-CyhvY

from Ohio

Comments about Dean Markley 2676 Blue Steel Cryogenic Medium Bass Strings:

I bought these strings from a local music shop for 30 bucks to replace the flat-wounds that were currently on my bass. As soon as i put these things on my bass i was completely blown away. My bass went from sounding like a cheap 200 dollar bass (which it is) to a $1800 G&L bass. These are by far the best stings on the market.

Quality Strings

By Anonymous

Comments about Dean Markley 2676 Blue Steel Cryogenic Medium Bass Strings:

I havent bought different strings in probably 5 to 6 years after I first started using blue steel bass strings on my fender jazz. Very durable and reliable tone for months and months of beating the crap out of them. They have a nice crisp deep sound. I have been afraid to try different strings.

        Great tone for all genres of music from Blues to Heavy Metal. Last a long time, get mellower with age. They do shred my fingers for a few gigs until they break in. They will strip my callouses down to bare flesh. After that they're awesome!!..

        Comments about Dean Markley 2676 Blue Steel Cryogenic Medium Bass Strings:

        Im a little surprised at some of the post on here I first bought these strings at a local guitar shop and thought they were great, but when that shop closed down recently I had to start buying them here. In any case I have many different guitars I put these on (in different gauges) including:Thunderbirds,p-bass's,jazz bass's,music man bass's, and I have never had a problem in the four years Ive been using them. I would recommend them to anybody.

        Blue Steel bass strings play very well and I have found that they are very long-lasting, even when played vigorously on a daily basis.

        Comments about Dean Markley 2676 Blue Steel Cryogenic Medium Bass Strings:

        I have been playing bass for 14 years. I play in a localy touring County band, but I aslo have played in everything from swing bands to classic rock to heavy metal bands. I have used many strings over he years ( mostly bacuse I could get new blues steels at biff's guitar hut out on the road)but for 14 years , I have always come back to and will always use Blue Steels. The perfect tone, feel, the perfect string. They last forever too. ( well more like 3-4 months ( and yes I play almost everyday).

        Comments about Dean Markley 2676 Blue Steel Cryogenic Medium Bass Strings:

        THese strings are utterly terrible! they have a twangy sound and a very high end. I cannot find a single genre of music that the tone that these emit. Pssh,cryogenic! The factory strings on my p bass gave a much better tone than these! These are a definite disgrace to all bassists of all around the world. Just utterly terrible.

        no good for me.

        By tUs2009

        from Lexington, Kentucky

        Comments about Dean Markley 2676 Blue Steel Cryogenic Medium Bass Strings:

        I bought these on a recommendation from a friend right before a 4 week tour. I bought new strings after 3 gigs because ALL of these strings broke on me. Never had that problem with any other strings. I looked for burrs on the bridge, I never keep my bass (1972 Fender P-Bass) in anything other than comfortable temperatures and humidities, I play with my fingers and never with a pick. These things nearly ruined a few gigs for me, had I not kept my old strings in my I would have been completely out of luck. I cannot recommend these strings less with my experience with them. I will NEVER buy these again unless I'm looking to put them on someone else's bass and ruin someone else's gig.

        I've been using these strings for about 11 or 12 years and believe me there's no other string that can match them. I've used Fender, Ernie Ball, Rotosound etc... They're good but Blue Steel kicks 'em. Give them a try... you'll not regret it. I found my strings and they are Blue Steel by Dean Markley.
