String Length: 43 inches
Stainless Steel wound strings became popular in the early Seventies. Stainless Steel strings are the brightest sounding strings and offer extended life to players who have acidic hands.
Stainless Wound strings are created by wrapping Stainless Steel alloys around a hex-shaped core wire which is made from tin-plated high-carbon steel (same as plain strings, but hex-shaped).
After playing literally every brand of string, from the obvious to the obscure, I finally tried Curt Mangan FusionMatched Stainless Steels about 4 years ago. Since then, they're the only strings I'll use. Period. In a word: simply the best. They always stay in tune; they hold their tone longer; they never break; they feel silky smooth; the sound great. Lovingly hand-crafted in the USA by people who care. It shows. Try them...you'll be a believer, and you'll never go back to what you were using before. Don't believe me? All that means is you haven't tried them yet. Again, simply the best...thanks, Curt!
