Curt Mangan 10-56 7 String Electric Guitar Nickel Wound Set.
Gauges: 10-13-17-26-36-46-56
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.

    Curt Mangan 7 string set-hands down the best!

    Posted by Russ Hunt on 12th Mar 2013

    Having played extended range instruments for nearly two decades, and having to use what was available for strings; an excercize in frustration. My Mangan 7 string sets are more balanced across the tuning range in tension. This translates into lower overall perceived effort and stable tuning. Other guitarists frequently aske if they are 9's (10-56's), as they feel so nice. An added benefit that I have noted on all of my guitars that I have been stringing with Mangan's the last 5 years is their innate ability to outlast other brands in sound and feel for significantly longer.
    My verdict is evident in my loyalty.
