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).

    Tone. Feel. Longevity. These strings are amazing. I didn't know what I was missing.

    Love these on 25.5 scale!

    I put these strings on my tele and strat - it's a great compromise between a set of 9's which can be too floppy for me and a set of 10's which are a little too tight on the tele (not too bad with a floating bridge on the strat). Kinda like, oh, i don't know - like they're right in the middle. :-) The Mangan Pure Nickel just kills...

    Best strings made today

    Just put these on a stratocaster. Rosewood board, swamp ash body, don mare robin trower pu's, raw vintage saddles/springs, Callahan block. Curt Mangan strings tune up faster, stay in tune better, and last much longer than any other brand I have ever used. I really love the 9.5 sets. I have been using the nickel plated on my les Paul for a couple of years too. I just wish more mom n pop stores carried them, but CM mailed them out fast and free shipping.

    pure nickel strings in a 9.5-44 set

    Curt Mangan seems to be one of the few making a pure nickel 9.5-44 set. I really like the sound and feel. They have about 12 playing hours on them (most in 90% humidity at outside gigs)and still sound alive. If you like pure nickel, I think you might really like Curt Mangan pure nickel strings.
