|MDP EARTHTONES – COATED/TEMPERED|
Kerly Music Strings are tightly wound using the finest metals, on monitored and maintained machines to ensure quality winding. We enhance the state of a regular string by exposing them to drastic temperature changes to create added benefits.
Our US Pat. No. 7,402,737 tempering process exposes them to minus 320F and plus 350F for 24-48 hours. This treatment uses liquid nitrogren to blast the strings with extremely cold air and is met by intense heat over a long period of time which provides added qualities such as strength, crisp tone, increased durability and corrosion resistance. Tuning is less frequent, and a smoother surface feel is created with stellar bendability.
All Kerly products are treated with this process – Kerly Kues, Sinister Strings, Earthtones, Wicked Wire, Death Valley, Kerly Bass, Millenia, 50’s Nickel.
Kerly Strings is the pioneering string company that started discussing that strings are all about metal, the type and how it interacts with your fingers. Prior to our introduction, other companies did not want to discuss “durability” or how inferior alloys do not provide a guitarist with a reliable source of strings. We also introduced our brand in 2003 packaged in barrier pouches to prevent oxidation. From winding, tempering, and packaging, we maintain a duty to the guitarist who truly relies on a set of strings for maximum endurance.
