Curt Mangan 10-46 Electric Guitar Nickel Wound Set.

This set is built in Cortez Colorado using only USA Made wire. The shiny round plain strings and hex-shaped cores for the wound strings are tin-plated, high-carbon #A-228 music spring wire. The winding on the wound strings is nickel-plated steel wire which has become the most popular electric guitar string alloy since the late 1960’s. You will enjoy balanced tone with a superb blend of highs, mids and lows and the easy bending yet solid feel of the 10-13-17P-26w-36-46 gauging which is also the world’s most popular gauging. String tension for this set in pounds when installed on a 25.5 inch scale guitar and tuned to standard pitch is (10)15.98, (13)15.18, (17)16.58, (26)18.42, (36)19.67, (46)17.41 for a total of 103.24 pounds. All strings are 43 inches long.   Clink HERE to listen to sound bytes.

    Want great tone?! I'm sure you do!
    There is something about these strings, the strings themselves complement single-coil pickups in a really special way. They are incredibly inviting to play on and will make you want to play more guitar! These strings are awesome!

    I’ve tried a lot of strings in my lifetime, but these are the absolute best. There is something different in the feel of them that other strings don’t have. It’s like they fight for you, not against you. There is something amazing in the attack and the way the push back. And the tone is AMAZING!

    I been playing for 20 plus years and have played many string brands. These have been my favorites and the only ones I've used the last few years. Great feel and life and I've never broken one at a show!
