Product Description

Curt Mangan 10-46 Electric Guitar Pure Nickel Set.

Gauges: 10-13-17-26w-36-46
String Length: 43 inches

Pure Nickel wound strings were used exclusively on most guitars built in the Fifties and most of the Sixties. Pure Nickel has a slightly warmer tone than nickel-plated steel and is preferred by many blues artists.

Pure Nickel Wound strings are created by wrapping Pure Nickel alloys around a hex-shaped core wire which is made from tin-plated high-carbon steel (same as plain strings, but hex-shaped).

  1. Tone and Feel=5 Stars

    Posted by Ditchgator on 13th Sep 2016

    Thought my search was over a long time ago for my preferred strings. However my local shop didn't have them for my 12 string. So, bought some of Curts for it and was extremely pleased. Then decided to give his 6 string electric sets a try.
    Enhanced feel and tones were immediately obvious. These strings brought out harmonics that I didn't know I was missing before. Big smiles.

  2. Simply the best!

    I, like most, wasted my time and money on other brands. These strings are the best and well worth the price of admission!

  3. First shot with this guage.........

    Posted by Paul on 10th May 2016

    I'm a huge fan of the half size set and went with the 10.5-.48 set for my 24.75 scale length guitars. I liked them a lot but thought I'd drop down one half gauge to see which I prefer the feel of. They're terrific sounding and playing strings.

  4. Blown away for a change

    Posted by RGM on 18th Dec 2014

    I have been playing guitar for over 50 years, and very rarely am I really impressed with strings. I have tried just about every brand and type there is. The pure nickel 10-46's blew me away with the quality of sound, articulation, and separation, on my G&L. This is the sound I have been trying to get out of this guitar. I'm going to try Curt's strings on my PRS, Strat, and then my acoustics.

    Thanks Curt.

    I intend to try the coated strings next.

    I have to get back to playing now.

  5. Sound Great, Last Long

    Posted by Dave Loughlin on 25th Jun 2014

    I use these on both my Les Paul Faded Standard and my LsL '52 T-Bone (tele) and they have a nice balanced sound on both guitars. They are not overly bright. They also last longer than just about every other non-coated string brand I have used.

  6. Excellent Strings

    Posted by Gaylen Henrie on 22nd Apr 2014

    Great feel and incredible sound, just as advertised :)I wont waste another dime on other strings, Curt Mangan strings are the best.

  7. Same great strings but new packaging!

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Apr 2014

    I have previously written how great these strings are, but now the sealed packaging makes them perfect.

  8. Tone

    Posted by Allen Gay (A.K.A. McGillea) on 2nd Dec 2013

    I've been playing guitar professionaly for fifty years and I use the curt mangan Pure Nickel strings on all my electric guitars simply because they allow the unique voice of each instrument to remain intact unlike any other string I have used. These strings have a wonderfully pleasing sound, producing beautifully balanced harmonics that embrace the fundamental tone like a velvet glove but can hit the front end of an amplifier like a hammer on an anvil if that is what I want.
    Also: If you have a "vintage" instrument these are the only strings to use.

  9. Great Strings!

    Posted by joetone on 12th Jul 2013

    Have tried numerous brands of pure nickel strings (GHS Burnished, etc.), there's no doubt CM Pure Nickels are the most consistent and best sounding string I've tried. Perfect for taming a bright Strat or Tele!

  10. I've finally found my sound

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Jun 2013

    I've been playing guitar for nineteen years; the last five professionally. It's taken me a long time but I've finally found my tone in Curt's strings. After trying everything on the market including much more expensive brands like Thomastik (also a great string), Curt Mangan is the string I come back to every time. The low price is icing on the cake. Thank you, Mr. Mangan.
