Product Description

12-16-24W-36-46-56 Lenth 43 inches. 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. It took several years of trial and error to develop a proprietary string coating that resists tarnish and corrosion without compromising tonal quality. Phosphor Bronze provides nice highs and lows with pleasant subtle overtones. Phosphorous is used to help reduce tarnish and corrosion.

  1. Best strings ever!

    Posted by Susan Dirks on 4th Jan 2013

    Best strings ever, tried em all, these hold up, with lots of both brightness and warmth. You've gotta try them to see what I mean, it's not a plastic coating, it's Curt's own special fusion process. Try them. It's worth a little extra. We use only Mangan strings on all our guitars and basses, they are the best.
