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.
Many players find Curt Mangan strings are the best sounding, longest lasting, most reliable, nickelwound guitar strings ever made.
My strings get rusty in as short as 30 minutes with Earnie Ball, Fender, D'Addario, etc., even when my hands are clean and I'm not sweating. These are the only strings that don't tarnish for days. I also noticed right away that the tuning stays so well. Until I used these I didn't know what it means that strings "stay in tune." You can hear and see it in the tuner as you tune. My friend told me that these are the only ones that stay in tune well with a strobe tuner. The tone is very sparkly with tight low ends so even if I hit the strings very hard, the tone doesn't waver, but stays intact. I don't even have to listen hard to hear the difference, like it's a placebo effect. The quality is noticeably higher than all the other brands I've tried. Now I can't stand using any other brands.
I've used all of the major brands of strings over the past 10 years and I just happened to run across these strings in an internet search. I figured I'd give them a try and I'm glad I did. Definitely my go to string. Stays in tune, great feel and fantastic sound.
Great strings with real presence, balance and touch. Home at last!
I have gone thru strings from all of the major manufactures and found that these are the best sounding, most consistent of the lot
Nice balanced tone. Cuts yet retains warmth. They can take a beating, they stay in tune and they feel great! I think I've found my new favorite string!
I've been using the same brand of strings for over 20 years and every once in a while I try a different brand. I always go back to the other brand, but recently I tried Curt Mangan strings and I have found my new strings! Love the feel, tone and the longevity that these strings bring. I won't be switching back to the other brand this time!
These strings really have delivered on all the great reviews I've heard. Shipping was quick and the customer service is first class!
Amazing tone, great clarity. Fast shipping. Highly recommended. My new favorites.
I recently took a leap of faith and bought a six pack of 10-46 nickel wound strings from you all. First, they arrived very quickly! I was quite impressed by that. I installed a set on my Gibson Firebird. They stretch quickly, intimate well, but best of all they sound great. My only gripe (and not a major one at all), is that I would rather purchase strings that have a vacuum sealed package. I live in the south, and feel that the old style packages allow too much moisture in due to our always high humidity. Other than that, the strings sound and feel great. At maybe a few cents more per pack for these, that makes the decision easy to buy these over the big brands. Thanks!
I have only used these strings for one gig so far but I love them. They have great tone and are extremely easy to play!
