New Gear Review: Dean Markley Signature Series Strings

Dean Markley’s Signature Series are strings for bass guitar. These use nickel-plated steel slowly wound over a hex core with a unique core-to-wrap ratio. By crafting the wrap wire over a steel hex (six-sided) core, the wrap wire is able to provide 100%, intimate contact with the core to insure maximum transfer of tone and sustain. Electroplated with pure nickel allows for better tone and output plus adds durability by resisting oxidation.


Dean Markley’s Signature Series are available in an assortment of gauge sets for four at $14.99 MSRP and five string players at $18.99.
