Dean Markley’s cool cables
Thirty years after the US company launched its Blue Steel cryogenically treated guitar strings, Dean Markley has launched similarly treated musical instrument cables, also to be called Blue Steel.
Applying the same treatment used to make Blue Steel strings, Dean Markley’s engineers have created cables with many of the same benefits the company claims, including a wider and more dynamic range with smoother, more refined highs and deeper and more articulate bass. The company says: ‘Players will immediately notice the super brilliant tone and in the long haul, they’ll benefit from the cables’ ultra-durability.’
Dean Markley explains that its Blue Steel Treatment gives each cable a blast of liquid nitrogen: ‘…that tightens the cables’ molecular structure, removing transient material that produces harsh highs and muddy lows. The result is a tonal quality that’s brighter and more alive across the entire range, with a tight bottom end. An added benefit of the Blue Steel Treatment is that it increases product longevity.’ To emphasise that, the company is offering a lifetime warranty on all its Blue Steel cables.
Blue Steel instrument cables are blue-woven and come in 10-, 20-, and 30-ft. lengths with straight connectors. Right-angle connectors are also available for the 10- and 20-ft. lengths. Blue Steel speaker cables are available in 3- and 6-ft. lengths, and also come in a 3-pack of 6-inch patch cables for pedal boards.
