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).
Been looking for a good long time for a set of 11s to play drop tuning and slide with and the Curt Mangan 11-54 Pure Nickel strings are the best I have tried. Almost as easy to play as 10s but have that extra punch and nice crisp tone that I like. Add to that some of the nicest folks I have ever ordered from----my string search is over.
