Historic stainless flatwound Bass Guitar strings in gauges 45-65-85-105. Great for jazz, but also used for many other styles of music.
Benefits of Flatwound Strings:
-Consistent tone over the life of the strings
-Less Fret wear
-Smooth surface causes less "squeaking" and easier on fingers
-Last longer than round wound strings, trade off in price.
I recently purchased a new bass which sounded so bright I thought I might have to replace the pickups. I switched out the factory strings with these flats (the first Curt Mangan's I've ever tried) and have found not only do they have a great feel but they also have a great sound. The bass sounds beautiful now. I'm so impressed I'll be putting Curt Mangan Strings on the custom bass I'm working on and any other basses I obtain. I'm a convert!
I was at a small music shop in Oklahoma looking for a flatwound bass string and they recommended these. I tried them and they were the perfect size (45-105) and had an even tone on every string. I've since then made the extra effort to use these on all of my basses. I have tried their strings on my guitar and mandolin too and was pleased with them too. Now I see that they have ukulele strings and I'll have to try those. My only regret for these flatwound bass strings is that they are more expensive than average. Since, I only change strings on my bass about once a year, then I figure it's worth it.
