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.
Best that I have tried

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!
Love these strings!

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!
Great Tone and Feel

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!
Awesome customer service, great tone, reasonable price and great durability.

The headline for this review pretty much sums up my experience with Curt Mangan strings. Curt's customer service is top notch and he will go out of his way to make his customers happy.
I really like these strings, they provide a very nice and balanced tone, I really like that the highs are very crisp, but not harsh sounding. As far as durability goes, they last just as long as any other good string out there.
I have Curt Mangans on all three of my guitars, a Gretsch Power Jet, Thinline Tele w/ P90s and a Strat. What I really like about these strings is that they help bring out all the character of each different type of pickup that I use.
If you are second guessing yourself as to whether you should try Curt's strings or not, I'd say go for it, you won't regret it.

love the tone and the feel!
I'm a believer

I recently picked up a Reeves Gabrels II guitar from Reverend. Reeves personally uses this same guitar as it comes stock, and his only mod is changing the strings that normally ship with Reverend to Curt Mangan strings. Believe it or not, they make a huge difference. They're bright, bold, and big sounding. I then replaced my Ernie Ball Cobalt 10s on several other guitars, and lighting struck each and every time. I have since gifted several friends with a set for their guitars, and now they're believers too. Thank you Curt Mangan!
