Curt Mangan 10-46 Electric Guitar String Pure Nickel Set.

Gauges: 10-13-17-26w-36-46
String Length: 43 inches

Pure Nickel wound strings were used exclusively on most guitars built in the 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

    I've been using these for a few years now. I've never broke one at a gig and seem to get the most life out of these strings compared to others I've used.

    Thru my years I have used most brands out there. Just about tried them all.
    These strings are at the top of the heap for me.
    They have reduced the dreaded “Stratitous” (sp) effect.
    They ring out with a musical clarity that inspires me to play more and enjoy.
    And I see that my tuning woes have stabilized significantly.
    On most other sets, a fresh string change would take me down that tuning rabbit hole for days.
    Curt’s strings have given’ me that time off.
    As a new customer, only time will show their longevity.
    That said, I have little doubt they will fall short.

    Put them on a Les Paul and I like the way they sound - usually use Gibson strings. These sound and feel better.

    I can't believe how long these strings last! I have a set of them on my latest guitar - a home-brew "partscaster" I've been carting around for 20 years, and which I just completed with a Squier Start neck from Ebay. The strings themselves are almost three years old. They may not have quite the high-frequency sheen of a new set, but they haven't lost much of their singing quality! The guitar sounds great, and I can record with it, and it doesn't sound like old strings, just a good clear tone, and what's more, the strings play as easily as they did when I fist put them on. I am sold on Curt Mangan Strings, and they are the only brand I will use for ANY of my guitars, electric OR acoustic!
