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.

    Pure Nickel Strings

    Posted by Paul L. on 14th Jun 2018

    I'm a fan of half size sets on my 25.5" scale guitars and these are by far the best I've played. Nice feel, mellower tonality, great for blues and r&b/soul tunes I play. The service has been top notch and I enjoy supporting a good Colorado based company.

    Excellent Gauge Choice

    Posted by Pat Iannone on 7th Feb 2017

    A friend recommended this gauge choice he had tried instead of 9's & 10's. I in turn recommended Curt Mangan Strings. The strings are excellent, for me more control, just right. Curt and his staff are excellent to deal with. GREAT!!!customer service.He takes the time to talk with you and makes sure your happy with your purchase.

    Great sounding and playing strings. I'm now favoring them over the GHS and D'Addario pure nickels I've been playing.

    Very responsive..............

    My initial impressions are positive. The Pure Nickel strings mellow out the top end from my single coil pickups nicely and I'm a huge fan of these half sets. I use either 9.5-44s or 10.5-48s on all of my guitars and these are among a very few pure nicked sets made in those gauges. I haven't had them on for long so I can't speak to their longevity but so far so good and if they continue to hold up and meet expectations I'll continue to use them.

    great sounding and long lasting strings

    i have been using CM pure nickel 10-48's on my gibson scale guitars for years. the 9.5-44's are perfecto to retain the feel and string tension on fender scale instruments. they have a great feel and tone and last a very long time.

    Yes, there is a difference.

    Like most players, I never put much thought into what strings I use except for the gauge relative to the guitar I am stringing. I kept reading about Curt Mangan strings and thought I'd give them a try. After the first set, I've never looked back. These strings feel so smooth and sound musical for weeks even with frequent playing. Tolerances are precise and the quality is second to none. My only complaint was oxidation on wound strings if I didn't use a set in a few months. The new sealed packaging has eliminated that issue. I prefer pure nickel and appreciate the half gauge strings and the ability to make a set with personal gauges.

    I have already sung the praises of these strings, but now they are perfect as they come in a sealed package. Thanks, Curt!

    Amazing tone and feel

    Posted by Russell Trevena on 20th Sep 2013

    Having played guitar for longer than I want to admit, I've become somewhat of snob when it comes to my instruments and how they are set up. Naturally, searching for strings is a large part of the equation. I used to buy whatever was available at the best price but began to realize that the phrase "you get what you pay for" may apply. I've also come to appreciate the improved tone of pure nickel strings. I read about Mangan strings on a website when searching for strings that come in half gauges. I bought this set and was knocked out by the feel, quality and tone. I have subsequently ordered 0.010 and 0.011 sets for my other electrics. It is inspiring to find an American company that puts customer service and quality above all. I don't think I'll ever buy a different brand of string again.
