These strings are awesome! This is my fourth time changing into these strings and i must say they are great for rock metal. They can also give you nice smooth creamy tones although i have to say they aren't the best for stuff like that. IF you are a beginner and you don't know what strings to get these will turn you into a Blue Steel fan right away.

They are a good string, BUT wear your frets down too fast!

I loved these strings. They have all the all the qualities of a well engineered product. But, I've noticed my frets are wearing down too fast!

One of the best strings you can buy!

By Scott Strain

from Phoenix, Oregon

Comments about Dean Markley 2552 Blue Steel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

I've been on and of with guitar but when it came to finding the right strings for me the Dean Markley Blue Steel are just what I find are the best. I've tried to use many brands but the Dean Markleys win hands down. There affordable and worth it, long lasting, great sounding and easy to play at any gauge. I would recommend them to beginners to pros and anything inbetween. Try them for yourself.

I Keep Going Back To Blue Steel...

By Brett

from Fairfax, Va

Comments about Dean Markley 2552 Blue Steel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

I have been playing on & off for over 20 years and these are my favorite strings out there. I have tried all of the other big name strings over the years and I keep going back to DMBS. I use two different guitars, one with standard tuning and the other tuned down a half step. I have tried heavier guages but I personally like the 9-42's (Light) for both guitars. I love the tone these strings give when new and they last longer than any others I have tried. Everyone has their favorites but I wouldn't recommend any other strings.

MUST USE!

By Phillip

from Georgia, USA

Comments about Dean Markley 2552 Blue Steel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

These strings are all you could ever hope for! I have used Elixirs, and I went back to these in no time. I have also used Fender strings and Ernie Ball, but they can't match up to DMBS. If you want killer tone AND a great life span, get these. And for the price, whats there to lose? Try these!

I would say buy these strings.

By Jim McPherson

from hutto

Comments about Dean Markley 2552 Blue Steel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

Since I have switched to the Blue Steel I'm not switching back. The tone and sustain of these strings are awsome. The price can't be beat either. I gave them a 5 star but it should be a 10.

              Comments about Dean Markley 2552 Blue Steel Light Electric Guitar Strings:

              Its a crapshoot between these and Elixirs...but if you consider cost I give these strings the edge. They sound amazing! I'm definitely going to keep using these strings again in the future. I loved them so much I decided to give their acoustic strings a try as well and the tone is amazing on those too.

              I use the Lights on my Strat and the Custom Lights on my Epi Les and my Dot. I love the sound of them. I have to order every time I need strings cause no one cares them.
