Nickel-Plated Steel wound strings were introduced in the late Sixties and have become the most popular alloy for electric guitars and bass. Nickel-plated steel tends to offer the most balanced tone.
Many players find Curt Mangan strings are the best sounding, longest lasting, most reliable, nickelwound guitar strings ever made.
I've been using Curt Mangan strings for about six years now. I've found nothing better. Even with the high quality of the strings, the pricing is very reasonable. Thank you Curt Mangan and team of Cortez, Colorado !!
For years I had been using Curt Mangan 11-54 , but had developed a significant amount of cramping in my left fingers & wrist. Sometimes after only 1/2 hour of play. So I decided to try going back to a 10-46, but was very hesitant because of rich tones I was getting on the 11’s, but fears & prayers have been answered. If anything, my tone has improved because of no cramping. These string sound amazing, my right choice.
I tried Curt Mangan strings last summer and found them to be great sounding, durable, excellent strings on my Gibson ES339. After meeting Curt in Cortez, Colorado, he convinced to try playing a Strat again - I've been a Gibson guy for a long time. Well, he was pretty convincing and I have another Strat on my hands and these are the only strings I'll put on it.
I can't seem to express qualitatively or quantitatively what it is is but ever since I started using the Mangan strings years ago, they have been my preference, I don't use anything else, haven't for a long time
Quality, sound, feel, longevity. For the price , unbeatable.
These have become my #1 string, really great!
These are really awesome reliable strings! Great overall tone and I've never broken one. They also have excellent quality and great customer service if you ever need to contact them!
I recently put a set on a PRS S2 Standard 24 with Fralin Unbuckers. They gave the guitar a brightness that the previous strings had lacked, and they add distinction of the coil-tapped to full pickup sounds. They are new, so I can’t speak to durability, but so far so very good.
I discovered Curt Mangan strings as a Matt Schofield fan and use them almost exclusively now. Crisp tone and easy on my fingers.
These have become my first choice, especially good with brighter pickups.
