    No hands! Oxidation unpacking

    Dean Markley NickelSteel ElectricPublished on 02/09/14 at 13:31
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    How long have you use it?
    6 months occasionally a secondary guitar

    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    Dunlop Ernie Ball only (excluding original D'Addario)

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    The most? Nothing
    Least? This oxidation unpacking, no sound (I love snapping Ernie Ball). The strings are all in one bag, maybe this is the cause of oxidation.

    How would you rate the quality / price?
    The price is generally low, but the quality is at the same level

    With experience, you do again this choice?
    Oh no, certainly not, and then another range for this manufacturer.

    In summary:
    I do not know how you can sell this type of product.

    versatile but very good omens on an acoustic, but I find that it is too standard, they are good for all styles of music does not wear out too quickly

    purchased by the lack of anything else available (I'm used to Fender pure nickel) to change the strings on my Squier stratovolcano.
    I had initially fears related to bad memories of a set of Dean Markley Blue Steel farting in my fingers to the first tuning.
    finally this one seems to bear the excessive bends (intro to Pink Floyd) and behaves rather well (given the proper tuning, its nice ...).

    that is, not disappointed and I am tempted to buy ...

    Hi,

    I just use a game, (I talk about my opinion on the D'addario)
    H b I will remove these accursed strings and D'Addario to submit the same shooting 9 / 46!

    I tried these strings because I have seen commercials and heard the users happy to use Dean Markley, am quite frankly the sound obtained do not like it at all. Touch is hard, his poor and lifeless. I use strats with the vibrato and the Dean are still dsaccordes, while with the D'addario I can do a really great use of vibrato without losing the tuning!

    Here I am DSOL for those who love these strings, but they do not sound.

    As for the life of a set of strings, I read a lot of funny stuff, like what a game only lasts a month …

    I change my strings every 15 days, or every week (very rare) because when we do concerts and rptitions, strings wear out really quickly. Will the same legendary Steve uses a same set for two concerts, because it breaks APRS!

    Anyway, I probably do not Rasht Dean Markley one day, or he will have the sound and feel Exceeds that of D'addario.

    I like the sound of strings, made a little dull and muffled in fact I do not like the bright sound of new strings.
    Trs good performance in time, I keep several months making sure to wipe off the handle after each use (but my fingers are dry that sweat almost never).
    These strings have a really great sound in blues, jazz, rock.
    Fans of metal, punk rock, heavy, these strings do not suit you for sure.
    Report quality reasonable price.
    I use them for some years dj.

    Nobody has an opinion on the best power cords on the market?
    I thought it odd that there were followers of markley.je use them for 8 years (the brand, not the game!) including 6 and 2 on my epiphone on my jackson.

    In short, I found these strings because they equip the guitars Hammett, of Mustaine and Friedman (Megadeth in his day). so I said, I will try, if they use them they must be good for both the rhythmic and solos.

    it was my goal: finding strings fairly accurate, bright and clear for solos and clear, and with sufficient presence, "punch" to sustain and hit for rhythmic. and found. very pleasant to the touch, it allows an ease of playing far beyond the average. they are much mo…

    it was my goal: finding strings fairly accurate, bright and clear for solos and clear, and with sufficient presence, "punch" to sustain and hit for rhythmic. and found. very pleasant to the touch, it allows an ease of playing far beyond the average. they are much more flexible and does not scour bcp fingers!

    to say I preferred my epiphone DM with my jackson with ernie ball slincky!! (Level hit, flexibility and comfort of strings) There's not a worry?

    Finally, they suit me perfectly, and I would not change for anything. after they sure will not be appropriate for everyone (I think the neo-metal and others), each has his tastes, but what is certain is that there are strings of very good quality (for € 7.50 it worth, rarely broken, except at the end of 1 year / 2 times a game!) they keep their "son" several months, and are fully transferable.

    For two days I have on my Ibanez RG1820 montes and feedback, I will turn ...

    I tried the Blue Steel dj before, I t trsdu sound and especially their strong (a rope PTEDIT the first tuning). Well l have to say that I do not see much diffrence except that nothing has rope cass.

    The sound is too sharp, snapping, trsmtallique, lifeless.
    I have much more noise, I do not understand why ...
    C'es true even if the sound is thanks to treble boost, it's unplayable.

    Try playing with a clean sound is not the top, a frieze on the frets: incomprhensible.

    In short, I'm going to try to give Dean Markley and D'Addario and at worst, return to the Ernie Ball.

    I used these strings for a year and a half of a stratovolcano and it does not stop to break!
    I tried to adapt my game and clean my guitar, nothing changed.

    Later I bought a new guitar, I immediately mounted Dean Markley, what a mistake!

    It broke all the time, and to change the string with a floyd rose every week, ca me quickly inflated, I switched to Ernie Ball and I have never farted a single string on my two guitars ... Since I am not too fan of Dean Markley.

    A word ...

    Hello world

    So I use the rope for easy 10-46 3-4 years ...
    I just went around the other strings but none got me hooked as well.
    I think they keep their original sound long. In addition, if one takes the trouble to clean the strings with a cloth after playing as a marmoset, we extend their service life even ...
    At the touch, they are (surprisingly) very sweet to play ... I find the more aggressive Ernie Ball, for example, but I can not explain why it is felt.
    And then the game at 6 euros (in store), it would be a shame not a good game that takes time.

    DEAN MARKLEY BOUH BOUH, a real headlock these strings when playing an hour a week but obviously it will soon be increasing the number dheure For example, 10-20 per week that farts all the time and yet I clean them etc. etc. And I too had a floyd so good still making big head, I boycotted the strings Moua.
    Very bad life, one or two weeks is not enough even with a floyd is very boring one worry is the other change that farts ...

    I'll probably passed over Ernie Ball was told that it was much stronger.

    Those with a floyd rose not come on this brand!

    I use them for 3 years, I was on D'Addario, who's also good trs, the Dean Markley have a more direct, but perhaps a tad cooler or warmer months, finally as we want ... I had no problem of breakage, they can be sensitive to the quality of the frets? by interrssant against a pipe, the lower strings in the two parties, the soul of the rope and one that wraps around and ben on the low E, the soul is larger diameter than most other brands making it is a tighter more precise limits the frieze and s is good for sustain.
