Dean Markley Nickel Steel Light Bass 40-128
JazzPunk, 17.10.2014
Dean Markley string is the brand that disappeared but are now back in the game. The range is downsized considerably, but the quality has increased significantly. Their Nickel Steel Bass has its advantages and disadvantages.

This set is for five string electric bass. The size of the set is balanced with a B-string that is moderately tight tension terms. However, it was the B-string in the set I bought dead at the first note. No life at all in the string, so it was just sort of a time! This pulls down the grade of craftsmanship quality significantly!

The other strands fyrsträngad mounted on a base instead. The remaining strings were of good quality with a clear tone that penetrated mix with good results.

Nickel Steel is a good budget option that sounds as good as equivalent strings that cost double!

I have owned a Victor Bailey signature Jazzbass V from the Fender custom shop for 5 years, then bought from Thomann and Fender original strings.
After playing the Venderaiter (Fender Precision Bass) again for a while, the five-string jazz bass suddenly offered a somewhat wiry feel. This may have been personal perception, but I looked around the net, which strings Victor Bailey plays himself and came to these Dean Markleys. I pulled them up, adjusted the strings again, and - what can I say - how made for this bass! Very soft and pleasant playing feeling and a variety of different sounds and nuances only by the velocity and the location, exactly what I was looking for!
It is worth it with signature instruments so to read, which strings the master himself uses. Thanks Mr. Bailey!

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
