These strings are as "vintage" as you can get. Pure nickel wrap on a round tin-plated, high carbon steel core. Many players believe that round core strings have a feel easier to play with less tension and have a clearer tone. By design, round core strings must be handle carefully so that the outer winding does not come lose. On guitars that have a an eye in the tuning post, it is important to install the string and tune to pitch before cutting the excess string off. On guitars where the tuning post has a hole down the center which require the string to be cut prior to placing the string down the post hole, it is important that to you first make a 90 degree bend before cutting the string. It best to make that 90 degree bend about two inches longer than the post where you will be installing the string. Once you have made the bend leave about one-half inch before cutting the string then place the bent section inside the tuning post and tune to pitch. Be aware that it takes longer for a round core strings to "settle" in and it requires many more tugs, but once installed and settled in, they are amazing.
I’ve been using Mangan extensively for a few years now. They are, in my humble opinion, the finest guitar string money can buy. I just recently tried the round core pure nickel and have a new favorite string. These add such warmth and low end that you can’t get from an ordinary string. Whatever pixie dust Curt is using in these I hope he continues. The Pure Nickel is my favorite string and the round core is pretty sweet when it comes to tone. I wouldn’t consider anything else for any of my guitars.
These strings seem to sound “better” than the many others I’ve tried, and for some reason also seem to last longer also.
great vintage tone
There is something about these strings that just feels right.
I have found all Curt Mangan strings to be superior. They Tune up faster, Stay in tune better, and Last Longer than any other brand I have ever used and I have used most.
I did have to reintonate for the Fusion matched strings coming from D'addario .
I tell everyone about Curt Mangan strings, They are the best. I even got my local shop to start carrying them.
