To celebrate Mötley Crüe’s new residency, “Mötley Crüe Invites You To An Intimate Evening In Hell” at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas, Dean Markley has teamed up with Nikki Sixx for an online trivia contest. The contest runs now through October 15, with prize packages that include a Nikki Sixx Signature Series bass from Schecter Guitars, an autographed drumhead signed by all four member of Mötley Crüe, an autographed copy of Mötley Crüe‘s Greatest Hits CD, Nikki’s Signature Series set of bass strings from Dean Markley and more. Fans can enter by visiting www.deanmarkley.com/nikkisixx/.
Nikki Sixx is the founder/bassist/songwriter of the band Mötley Crüe, with album sales exceeding 80 million, seven platinum or multi-platinum albums, 22 Top 40 mainstream rock hits, six Top 20 pop singles, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and three Grammy nominations for Best Hard Rock Performance. Sixx’s Signature Series set of strings is part of Dean Markley’s Helix line. With more than a year of research and development, the strings use a precise elliptical shape for the winding wire. The shape then has to be paired with the correct winding process. The hyper-elliptical winding process results in an increased number of wraps along the length of the string. This increases the mass of the string without changing its diameter or material. More mass makes a fuller tone; more windings give a smoother feel as well as a brighter, more resonant tone.
