Curt Mangan 9-42 Electric Guitar Nickel Wound Set.

Gauges: 9-11-16-24w-32-42

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.

    Great Tele Tone

    Posted by Duval Jr on 7th Aug 2017

    These strings have crazy good tone on my Tele. Most strings you can't really tell the difference, but with these you can.

    Best strings on the planet

    I'm a guitar tech, builder and have been playing since age 6. Curt Mangan Strings are consistent set to set and they feel great and sound fantastic. They also last a lot longer than other strings, especially in the humid climate of southwest Louisiana.
