Curt Mangan 09.5-44 Pure Nickel Half Size Guitar String Set

Gauges: 9.5-11.5-16-24-34-44
String Length: 43 inches

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).

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.

    Went from 10's to 9.5 Nickel on a 66 Fender Ebaycaster. Plugged into a 50 Champion 600. Throw away all other brands of strings and find an old 600. Pure Bliss in the age of Death.

    I love these strings! Im 64 and I play 2 to 3 hours a day. Ive played 10’s for the majority of the past 45 years. This set is the perfect sweet spot! This is a well made string.... and they stay in tune and last a long time.

    These are great sounding strings... I'm still not sure which ones I like best. Still comparing, pure nickel, round and retro. Can't go back to the steel strings though...

    I ordered the strings they arrived in 3 days. I have used these for 10 years and the gauges and feel are perfect for my playing.

    Pure nickel 9.5’s

    Posted by Brent on 12th May 2020

    I couldn’t be happier with these strings! I’ve tried them all... I’ve been switching between 9’s and 10’s. These are the perfect feel for me. Vintage Les Paul tone!!! Very high quality. Thanks!

    10's were too hard to bend. 9's were too easy.
    Like Goldilocks said "this one is just right".
