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).
You must try these strings. Great feel under the fingers. Better than all steel. Excellent sound. Look into Curt Mangan Pure Nickel Strings. Don't always use the big guys.
I have been playing guitar for the past 40+ years. I am a lead guitarist who relies on my strings. I have been usng Curt Mangan pure nickel Fusion Matched strings for several years now. I can say they are the best! The strings “feel” great from the 1st to the 6th string. The sound of the strings is awesome...cutting through the mix and standing out from the crowd of me too strings. The combination of feel and sound make Curt Mangan strings the best in my opinion. I use no other brand of strings now, Thanks for making the best strings, Brian Wood
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
