Curt Mangan 9-42 Electric Guitar String Pure Nickel Set.

Gauges: 9-11-16-24-32-42
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).

This guitar string set is also available in Round Core.

Ever want to create your own customized and personalized guitar, bass, mandolin or banjo sets? Curt Mangan Strings lets you choose the alloy and custom gauge strings that you want, plus you can design your sets to be the perfect balanced tension sets you’ve been searching for. You can also have your name printed on the labels. Just click here for more information

    I play classic country music and need that clean tone ,, smooth lows and clean highs,, these strings do that for me,, if you want a clean clear tone buy the pure nickel strings by curt Mangan,, if you play distortion buy the cheapest you can find because who cares when you play distortion...

    They are better, I can feel the difference.

    Just tried out my first set of Curt Mangan's, bought my usual gauge but tried the pure nickel for the first time. These strings are punchy, bright yet controllable and they feel different under my fingers, like they'll put up with whatever I throw at them. Bends, fingerpicking, strumming and single note lead limes all translate well through these strings. I just noticed they carry a 9.5 gauge so I am trying those out next. That custom gauge sounds perfect for my style. Best strings ever!

    I have used quite a few brands over the years but these give a cleaner and much clearer sound. They also feel great.
