Curt Mangan 8-38 Electric Guitar Pure Nickel Set.

Gauges: 8-11-14-22w-30-38
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).

    The Best!

    I love these strings. I switched from a competitor when I first heard about them a number of years ago and I couldn't be happier. I love the sound and they have a really comfortable feel without sacrificing that sound. I play a lot of pedal steel bends so the 08-38 set is great for that. In fact I change the 22W to a 20W so I can bend the 'D' string which makes playing triple stop bends even easier and when I do they don't go out of tune still retaining a clear rich tone. I also play a lot of chord melody and I don't have a problem of bending them out of tune with a little practice. I highly recommend these!
