45-65-85-100-130 53 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.
I’ve only had them for a few shows but I like them. I dig the tone and feel of them and the tone has been very consistent. I will definitely uses these again!
So far I’m impressed. Only had them a few weeks but I dig the tone and feel of them. They also seem to hold tone longer. Will definitely be using these again!
I've used everything out there from tapewounds to pure nickel from every manufacturer including Pyramid and Thomastik. I put these on my J bass along with a 110 for the E string - and I love them. Tight, balanced tone from low to high across the whole fret board, and so easy on the fingers. I have a new favorite, and have been recommending them to other players. Quality all around!
Used Curt Mangan's on the recommendation of a friend, and am very happy with the results. Will be using them going forward. They have great feel and tone!
After reading much about Curt Mangan bass string (Scott Beckwith recommends them for his wonderful cortobasses) I decided to give it a try. These are simply fantastic strings! My comparison are the D'addario and GHS bass strings and I think I like the CM far more. 1) They maintain tuning much better and longer 2) The tone seems to be more consistent and last longer than the others 3) CM string surface seems smoother 4) If you use a 5 stringer the low B seems less floppy than the others. 5) CM strings are cheaper and if you buy them from CM website you get a nice discount for bulk purchases. These are the strings I am going to use from now on!
