45-65-85-105 53 inches 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.
These strings give the best tone ever, and they hold up like none-other(I'm a hard thumper)! Not slimy like plastic coated strings, the coating is fused metal, call Curt, he explains it best. Did I mention tone and sustain with these amazing strings? wow. Pure genius, Curt.
Also, thanks to Scott Beckwith of Birdsong Guitars for introducing us to Curt Mangan strings. Scott recommends the nickel wound strings for his handmade custom basses. Now we use Curt's strings exclusively on all our stringed instruments. Once you feel and hear them, you'll understand. They are also affordable for a premium string.
