Full rock 'n' roll tone.

Dean Markley's Vintage Reissue electric guitar strings are nickel-plated steel hand-wound slowly over a round core, which affords the outer string wrap to have 100% contact with the core wire. This allows the guitar string to vibrate completely for maximum sustain, creating a warm, full sound distinctive of classic rock 'n' roll.

Vintage Electric Reissue strings are the exact same strings, with the exact same formula, as the original Vintage Electric that became so world famous. The care taken in producing these strings ensures that they have clear tone and be as long-lasting as the original Vintage Electric guitar strings.

This special re-creation of the original string formula celebrates a return to vintage tones that modern players continue to demand.

The Dean Markley Vintage Electric Reissue strings received the Best in Show award for the Best New Accessory at Winter NAMM 2008 musical products convention

Less Than Satisfied

Comments about Dean Markley 1973 Vintage Reissue Regular Electric Guitar Strings:

If you buy guitar strings for the cool logos, packaging and free stickers, then by all means, buy these 1973 Vintage Reissue strings. If you want your guitar to sound good, look elsewhere. I swapped the stock Gibson USA strings on my new Les Paul Jr for these and 1973 RI strings sounded pale, lifeless and flat in comparison. Sure they might "stay in tune good", but most of the major manufacturer strings do as well. Actually if your guitar is setup, stored and played correctly, almost any string should stay in tune. After a week of use, I swapped the '73 strings out for a set of my normal strings: Ernie Ball Regular Slinky. The overall sonic change and chord clarity was immediate... the guitar "came alive" again. Oddly enough, I had purchased a new amp at the same time that I swapped into the 1973 Vintage Reissues. They sounded so horrible, I thought that my new Orange amp (or new Gibson guitar) was at fault. Nope. It was the literally strings. I bought these on a chance and they were cheap, so its not a loss (other than the time to re-string).

Original is often best

Comments about Dean Markley 1973 Vintage Reissue Regular Electric Guitar Strings:

When I was in high school in the late '70's, my best friend at the time Lloyd recomended what were then new the strings with the cool labels, Dean Markeley. They weren't as expensive as some, sounded really nice, and stayed in tune as well as Fender or Ernie Ball. Also, if like us you lived in a rural environment, the countryish cartoon drawn labels were in line with where you did most of your playing - living rooms, barns, in a field with a generator, kids, dogs, Hippies and teenagers all dancing around. So when these recently resurfaced I quickly bought four sets - for sentimental reasons for sure - but also I knew these guys put out good strings anyway, although I never bought into the whole cryogenic concept, and found the labels unatractive. Whether they sounded this good back then I can't say, but I'd put them up against anything out there. Not as zingy as Boomers, more chimey like D'Adario or Fender. Beautiful sound, durable, and stay in tune real, real well. And again, the coolest labeling is always a plus. We need more home-spun and organic atttitude in the world these days anyway.

Best on the market!

I have been using these strings for a few gigs now on my Tele, and they are really great. I strum a lot, but no one of them broke yet. They also come with a very cool sticker.
