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

    Absolutely amazing sounding and feeling strings! Beautiful warm tone with just the right amount of bite. These strings stretched in surprisingly fast and stayed in tune on my strat even after using the whammy bar. I love these strings and will definitely be purchasing more!

    Superior strings I’ve gone back and forth and just can’t find anything that compares to these in tonality and playability

    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.
