String Length: 43 inches
Nickel wound guitar strings are made by winding nickel-plated steel wire around a tin-plated, high-carbon steel hex core wire. (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. Nickel wound guitar strings have a very balanced tonal response with sparkling highs, clear mid-range and defined bass. These guitar strings are available in many gauges as single strings and you can also build your own custom gauge nickel guitar string sets with you own perfect balanced tension.
Curt Mangan guitar strings have an overall length of 43 inches with winding to 38.5 inches. All Curt Mangan guitar strings are made with USA made wire.
This guitar string set is also available in pure nickel with hex-core.

I've tried many different brands and gauges and never was that satisfied just okay. I tried the 10.5-50 guage on my telecaster and they are amazing. I'm done looking for strings these are my set and bought 6 packs
Found out about this from That Pedal Show they do not disappoint.
Personalized String Set
I have always been a big Ernie Ball fan however, I always had to mix string sets to get what I want. The Curt Mangan strings are a step above and I can create my own set. Awesome strings!
I have been using these for about a month now. I have always been d'addario string person. They are hard to beat for the price but I've recently switched to using stringjoy and Curt Mangan strings. These are great strings. They have a long life with a warm clear tone. For me, a string is all about how it feels under the fingers and these feel great. I was using 11-50 with string joy but I really like the 10.5 option with these. I plan to keep using these over going back to stringjoy. The price is very competitive too.
I've been on the string journey for 5 years. Started with 9, then moved through the gauges until 11-52; each time finding it easier to play chords. Like many, I've used most of the leading brands. I settled on Elixir coated 11s for my LP, ErnieBall 11-52 for single coils. Matt Schofield was the reason for trying the CM strings. Ordered a dozen sets of 11-52 and hated them. They were stiff and felt gritty. Samantha, in customer service, was excellent. She took the strings back and helped me settle on the 10.5-50 and was sent an exchange. Since then, I've placed my second order. They are excellent. Great feel and last longer than any other non-coated string I've used. Typically, I would change my strings every 2-3 weeks. With the CM, I find I can go 8+ weeks. Overall tone and feel remain consistent. Due to their price, strings are an easy to experiment. But, after 5 years, I believe I can settle on the 10.5-50 with the desire to search out alternatives. Discount codes and free shipping promos simply make it that much easier to stay with CM. Thanks all.
New favorite gauge combination
I've been a Curt Mangan guy for several years now, but this year I tried the 10.5-50 set (#11550) for the first time because I wanted a bit beefier feel in the low strings with the 10.5-17 feel I love on top. The idea is more or less like Matt Schofield's set, but slightly slinkier, especially on the low E. I did some single strings orders before I noticed this set, and next time ordered this set. It became my new favorite combination right away.
Nickel Wound Electric Guitar set
I strung up a Fender American Tele with these bad boys and such clarity! The notes just ring out and even after a couple weeks the strings still feel fresh and new. Great prices and great deals all the time from the company. Thanks to That Pedal Show for turning me on to these.
