To create wicked tone, Kerly go above the norm to obtain powerful sound, solid bass response and screaming highs. They connect a tank of liquid nitrogen to a computer-controlled device and watch as the line freezes over, dropping the strings to minus 320 fahrenheit. Deep within the machine, the frigid cold air meets intense heat and the fire and ice tempering process expands and contracts the strings, reducing the microcracks that cause tone loss and premature breakage. The end result is a string that will not fail you on stage or in the studio.

Comments about Kerly Music Kerly Wicked Wire NPS Electric 8-String 10-74:
Nitrogen dipped strings last a long time, but have a dull tone compared to other strings. Anyone who has ever used Dean Markley Blue Steels knows what I'm talking about. These strings are great for your band practice guitar because you can pound on them and watch the other guitarist in your band change his strings every other week. Just don't expect great brightness or tone. Great for song writing when you're playing riffs over and over and don't need breakage to slow you down. I wouldn't use them for a show, but because I'm lazy, the durability make them workhorses for me. Also the string winds will either sand off your calluses or give you kung fu fingers.
