String Length: 43 inches
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).
The 20w string in this set is too heavy. I like to do full step bends from the G string. I intend to replace the G strings in my Curt Mangan 6 pack with 17's. Other than that, the Curt Mangan 10-50 Pure nickel set is great!
