    Does anybody here use S.I.T. strings? Opinions? Allegations? Rumors?

    What do you mean I don’t like change? Nobody likes change when it sucks.

    I used to use them, never had a complaint about them. Been years since I have though, not as readily available anymore

      I hadn't seen them in years. I honestly didn't know they were still made.

            Anybody use / tried the Dean Markley "cryogenically treated" Blue Steels?!

            gave me the heaviest tone ever, but wore down the frets of my RG in just a few short years :/.

            Too bad about the fret wear, if not I'd love to try them out again.

            btw, never tried (or even heard about) S.I.T. strings .
            If somethings important- send a PM. I might be offline for long periods. Rock on!!!

              Ive used Blue Steel before, meh at best. I have an issue with Dean Markley from years ago, so I stopped buying their strings

                SIT Strings have been around for decades, but I never knew what was supposed to keep them in better tune than other strings. Are they treated? Reinforced? What voodoo do we have here?

                  I dont think they were any better than any other brand for staying in tune, its all about marketing.

                    "Strings and Beyond" still carries them. I recently ordered a bass set, but haven't installed them yet.

                      Does the packaging reveal what the secret is?

                        Well, it says . . .

                        "The exclusive process of Inverse String Winding compresses the outermost part of the nickel plated cover wrap while leaving the internal structure of the string intact. Perfect for fretless basses, or applications where a slightly more mellow tone is desired."

                          Well, that certainly clears it up. This mystery is declared....solved.

                            I used to use SIT strings, and they were very good. I like them better than D'Addario or Ernie Ball for sure. I only stopped using them when I decided I liked round core strings better, and SIT doesn't make any round core. I thought they were great though, especially for the money.

                              Apparently they give you an extra first and second string in the pack.
