Curt Mangan 10-48 Electric Guitar Nickel Wound Set.
String Length: 43 inches
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.
Nickel Wound strings are created by wrapping Nickel-Plated Steel alloys around a hex-shaped core wire which is made from tin-plated high-carbon steel (same as plain strings, but hex-shaped). The core-to-wrap ratio is the combined diameters of the core wire and the wrap wire which creates the overall diameter of the string.
These strings have a good sound. They feel good and I recently switched over to these from another big name brand company with an eagle on the front ;) Most importantly they carry all sorts of strings and are all sealed properly. That's a must!
I used D'Addarios for 10+ years. Tried one pack of Mangans on a recommendation and that was about 2 years ago and I haven't used another brand since. They are fantastic.
