Backed by more than 40 years of string-making history, Dean Markley has grown from humble origins into a top manufacturer of all kinds of strings. Of every variety they produce, though, some of Dean Markley's most distinctive offerings are their bass guitar strings. Played by the likes of Nikki Sixx and Sean McNabb, there's no doubt that these strings are in a league all their own. Their success owes itself to a simple formula: pushing string craftsmanship forward while keeping a strong emphasis on quality and playability.

To see that commitment to innovation at work, all you have to do is to look at Dean Markley's Blue Steel series of strings. The name isn't just for show - these strings are actually cryogenically treated with liquid nitrogen. Why do that? To make better strings through science, of course. The process helps the molecules in the metal to tighten up and bind together more strongly, which translates into a longer-lasting string with excellent tone. You can experience the difference yourself with sets like the 2674 Medium Light Bass Strings for your standard-scale bass, or the 2679 Medium/Long 5-String set if you like a long-scale, extended-range instrument.

Another great example of how Dean Markley takes string design to the next level is the Helix lineup. They're made of a special type of stainless steel in order to deliver a bright, edgy sound. On top of that, Dean Markley's original "Hyper Elliptical" winding method really comes through with a punch of body and tone. It's a great combination, made all the better by their easy playability and reduced fret noise. The Helix series is also where you'll find Nikki Sixx's signature strings, which are the same ones Nikki uses onstage - and that means they're more than ready to take the same kind of high-energy playing style.

The bottom line is that Dean Markley is absolutely on top of their game when it comes to making outstanding bass guitar strings. A great bassist isn't afraid to think outside the box and try new things, after all, so it makes sense that a great string maker thinks the same way. When you're ready to take things to the next level as well, Dean Markley bass strings are a solid choice.
