Dean Markley pioneered the process of cryogenically treat strings in order for them to perform better, and these are more defined, brighter and bassier than their standard article. I would therefore not recommend these for guitars with active pickups, Lace Sensors or similar, as they are very clear in themselves. Nice 'ping' in the attack that evolves into a mellow, bluesy, rounded vibe.
Dean Markley has had quality issues with these strings earlier, that is now resurrected by different packaging. However as a consequence there's no longer the option of a wound 3rd with this set, which I prefer, so I'm a bit disappointed by that.
I heard that Dean Markley strings were applauded for their constant quality. When I took these strings out of their package, i noticed that the coating was irregular and faulty. Nontheless, I installed the strings and they had an acceptable sound quality. The imperfections with the coating did not interfere playing at all.
Given the possibility of imperfections in coating, I would not recommend these strings. I do not know if these kind of defects are common, but this kind of first impression surely decreases my trust in the company. I have not had these kind of problems with other brands like Ernie Ball or Elixir.
