Crafted of 92% Copper and 8% Zinc, Dean Markley Blue Steel acoustic strings are cryogenically frozen with liquid nitrogen which makes them special in term of string quality. By freezing the Blue Steels down to -320ºF during the string making process, it will tighten the molecules and minimize microscopic gaps. This process removes transient frequencies that produce harsh highs and muddy lows, creating a more consistent string, with true tone and longer life.
