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.
I have been using these strings now for around 10 years or so. I typically tune to C# drop B. And floppy little strings with no tension just don't cut it. And finding anything over a 56 locally was near impossible. I happened upon a.set at local shop and picked them up...that set stayed on that guitar for almost a year...and it wasn't for lack of playing it. They just lasted that long. I couldn't believe it....i keep string changes to the 4 month window now, hahahahah. Seriously 24.75, 25.5, 27 and longer scales these are perfect for getting low and retaining your sustain, they last forever....I think I might be a bass player now. Hahahah
...to B or below? Then this is the set you need. Great sounding, long lasting strings, the wound 3rd intonates perfectly. Been using them for about 5 years now and haven't broken 1 yet.
Great strings. They have a really nice feel and good tonal range. They fit my fender bass six, which not all baritone strings do. My first set of curt mangans and I'm very impressed- I will definitely try their guitar and bass strings.
Consistent and familiar strings. solid tone and long enough to handle 6 in line headstock baritone length. wound 3rd intonates just right.
I go in baritone (Alot) And These are the best baritone strings a fella can get!
