Curt Mangan 9.5-44 Electric Guitar Nickel Wound Set.

Gauges: 9.5-11.5-16-24-34-44
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.

    9.5 nickel wound

    I have tried many brands Magnan is the best. 9.5 hits a sweet spot for me easy to bend thick enough to sound like 10s.
    Magnan makes the best strings hands down.

    I've tried 3 or 4 different brands of 9.5-44 strings. The Curt Mangan sets are perfect. Not sure exactly, but it seems they have more wraps per inch than D'Addario or Ernie Ball. They are smooth, responsive, long other words, PERFECT. Thanks Curt!
