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.
These strings have crazy good tone on my Tele. Most strings you can't really tell the difference, but with these you can.
I'm a guitar tech, builder and have been playing since age 6. Curt Mangan Strings are consistent set to set and they feel great and sound fantastic. They also last a lot longer than other strings, especially in the humid climate of southwest Louisiana.
These are the best strings I have used. Their tone is totally unique.
