Total Length 53 inches. Winding: 36 3/4" 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.
I have trying different strings for years and have finally found what I believe are the best on the market for tone, playability and longevity. I have Curt Mangan NickelWounds on on both my four- and five-string basses and could not possibly be more satisfied. Just give them a try.
I well-made string that holds pitch and presents a slightly aggressive attack. This response works well for low action and a less aggressive finger attack. The winding is slightly larger than some strings allowing for less fret buzz with a nice silvery glide feel.
I have been playing bass for over 50 years and these are the best strings I have ever used! Very responsive and bright.
A few years back I was turned on to Curt's strings at a local guitar shop. These are the only strings I have used since then. The tone is clear and articulate. They feel balanced and respond well to timbre. And they last ta-boot. I have not been disappointed with Curt's strings.
I have using CM strings for a year now and they have replaced almost every other string on my guitars and basses. Fast shipping, consistently great tone, and long life time will keep me coming back.
I´m using Curt Mangans since 2009, and i just can say they are tonally perfectly balanced on every electric bass, and let your fingertips feel good. Besides that the price is ok. I can recommend them to every bass player !
