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).

I’ve been using another brand of strings for many years. I recently had a custom guitar built and I noticed that even though gauge was the same, the strings played a bit easier, and had a liveliness to them. I called the luthier who told me what brand he uses. So after many years, I think I’ll be making the switch permanently to your pure nickels.
I have been using these strings based on the recommendation of Keith and the team at Red Plate. Great call on their part. These strings sound fantastic. I usually change strings for every gig, but these maintain their song so well that I've done a few gigs without changing and they still sound sharp and toneful. i really liked my NYXLs but these are a cut above.
I was using D'Addario NYXL 10-46 for a while. They are great strings but tend to lose their tone quickly. I usually change them for every gig. The Curt Mangan pure nickels have more of a vintage vibe and retain their tone much longer. I've done 3 gigs with these strings and they still sound fantastic.
Simply the best strings I've tried in over 40 years. Beautiful tone and unmatched stability.
I've been on a string search for quite a while now and these pure nickel Mangans are my favorite to date. So much so its all I'll use from now on. Really good!
My take on Curt Manga Strings is, "They don't die, EVER!" Unlike most current-market strings, Curt Mangan Strings never go completely dead. I have left sets of their Pure Nickel strings on my electric guitars for months, and in a couple of cases, for over a year. The strings did not go totally dead the way most other string brands do. They did change some but there was still]more than enough life in them to use for performance and recordings. Some other brands of strings start off extremely bright and you have to "break them in " to get rid of the excessive brightness, and they continue to die fairly quickly. And when I put Curt Mangan Strings on my electrics I don't have to pull and pull to get them to stay in tune. Of course I do change strings often just to get the feel and sound of new strings And I am amazed that Curt Mangan Strings are so consistent in sound and feel from one set to another. It must be that Curt Mangna makes these strings correctly from the first, with good source materials and manufacturing, and the strings stay "in shape" for a long, ,long time. I use nothing else.
Strings feel great. Intonation was spot on. They stay in tune and the tone is great. I'm sold. My new standard string for all my guitars.
Improved tone, last longer, tuning stability. What more can I say. These strings are all that. Thanks Curt...................you've got my business and support. Mike Derrico
