Phosphor Bronze wound strings were introduced in the early Seventies and have become the most popular acoustic string. Phosphor bronze wire is made from approximately 92% copper, 7% zinc and 1% phosphorous. Phosphor Bronze provides nice highs and lows, as well as pleasant subtle overtones. Phosphorous is used to help reduce tarnish and corrosion
Clear as a bell, rich lows, stays fresh longer than most, stays in tune.
Curt Mangan strings sound clear, last a long time and I've noticed that there is less of the annoying drag sound from finger friction on the strings going up and down the neck. Just one less distraction in the overall sound and a real plus for me. Thanks!
Great sustain and clarity! When these strings are old they still sound better than some of the other companies new strings!
Bought a set of these while on Vacay in Glenwood Springs, CO on shop owners suggestion, couldn't be happier...made in CO, brought my RD010 to another level. Can't wait to try an electric set on my Esquire Strat & see the difference there...
