Pure Nickel wound strings were used exclusively on most guitars built in 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).

    Decisions, Decisions...

    Posted by Mike Davidson on 2nd Oct 2015

    We have a lot of choices when it comes to guitar strings but I am glad my decisions are over. I have found my go to set with Curt's 9-42 Pure Nickel Electric set. I have several electrics and I use this same set on all of them. So my biggest problem is making sure I have enough sets. I change the strings and write the date and guitar on the wrapper and put it in a stack. I change by ear, not by certain amount of time, and I am sometimes shocked at how long it's been since the change. They are that clean, smooth and durable.

    By far, these are the best guitar strings I have ever used. Great tone, amazing attack and sustain

    Curt puts all other brands to shame
