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.

    I have tried many strings and these are my favorite. Full tone and not stiff like some. Ball ends don't break off like other brands.

    Curt Manan Fusion Matched Nickel Wound

    I switched over to Curt Mangan strings about 1 1/2 years ago. Mangans are hands down the best strings I have played in 30 years of playing. I really hear the difference in the studio. These strings last a long time as well, I play a lot (17-20 hours a week easy) and these strings hold up to it. I've had these last 8 months showing no signs of rust, maintain good tone quality and stable tuning. I wish I'd found these strings sooner. I highly recommend these strings!

    These are my favorite electric strings, and I have tried every brand I've came across. Hold tune during bends, and have a nice fat tone without being muddy.
