Nickel-Plated Steel wound strings were introduced in the late Sixties and have become the most popular alloy for electric guitars and bass. Nickel-plated steel tends to offer the most balanced tone.
Nickel Wound strings are created by wrapping Nickel-Plated Steel alloys around a hex-shaped core wire which is made from tin-plated high-carbon steel (same as plain strings, but hex-shaped). The “core-to-wrap” ratio is the combined diameters of the core wire and the wrap wire which creates the overall diameter of the string.
10/38 or the best strings for floating tremolo systems.. I get the great lead sound with the 10's as the high strings and great squeals with the 38's as the low strings.. These strings have great balance.. Many guitar players believe that the thicker the string the thicker the sound.. Not necessarily true when using the right amp for the right tone you are looking for! Please don't stop making this set! www.chillfactorsa.com

Very Happy to find these strings. I play every weekend and I got to try these out this last weekend. Man was I impressed. Please don't stop making these. You know have a new happy customer. Kurt T www.chillfactorsa.com
I preferred a lighter bottom string than most players. The .38 reduced the tension on the neck and softened the pull a bit. It was difficult finding the 10-38 gauge, until Blues Angel Music in Pensacola turned me on to Curt Mangan. I tried a set and was very impressed with the tone and quality. They lasted longer, stayed stronger and sounded more...I don't know how to describe this....more a part of the guitar. It was like the guitar and the strings were working together again. If your searching for the best tone and sustainability, start with these strings.
