Curt's strings are as good as anything out there and the gauge selection can't be beat. I was finally able to make the perfect set of strings that were not only balance well, string to string, but that also were right in between 9s and 10s tension-wise. I will continue to use Curt's strings for as long as they make them.
Amazing strings and crazy fast shipping for a custom order!
Excellent service, excellent strings, and my buds think it's cool I have my own signature set of strings. Thanks Curt
I'd long been dissatisfied with the feel of other strings: 9.5 sets felt too floppy on the wound strings while 10s were too stiff on the plain strings. With custom sets, I can get the tension on each string optimized for my playing style. Having my name on each pack is a nice stroke of the ego, too.
I have been using Tomastik-Infeld Power Brights professionally as a full-time musician for the last 12 years. After recent suspicions of quality loss, and incessantly rising prices for their strings, I finally started to look elsewhere. Brand loyalty kept me in as long as it did, but c'mon already on the price!
I am so glad I found Curt Mangan mentioned on a forum discussion online. I'm surprised I haven't come across this brand before. After visiting their website and seeing they are USA made I inquired further. I received same day replies to my questions, and learned that I can make custom gauged sets. Too cool! I had to order a box. I figured if I didn't love them I could use them on office guitars or gift them to students as practice incentives.
I am happy to say that I will be using these strings exclusively on my PRS 2005 McCarty, and 2006 Custom Shop LP for shows and gigs. These strings have a wonderful tone, and an equally wonderful playing experience. My first set still looks and sounds brand new after practicing for a week on them and doing a couple 3-set shows on them two nights in a row. I couldn't be happier with the product, and am looking forward to making these my new brand of choice. Thank you!
I saw a link to this company and decided to try them. I ordered a custom gage set that suited my desire for a bit more thickness in tone for my guitars. It is also cool that they custom print the cover with the buyer's name. I placed the order late one evening. The very next day I received an email confirmation. I liked the attention to detail and quick response. The strings were shipped soon after that and again, I received an email telling me they wee shipped. I received them quickly and put a set on my favorite "go to" guitar right away. They sound fantastic and stay in tune exceptionally well! I just played a gig last night with that guitar and our sound tech commented that my tone was excellent. I plan to purchase another dozens sets when I get half way through this first order.
String gauge is subjective but that being said, this option allowed me to create exactly what i wanted. Not only that but it was shipped within a day of being ordered, was very impressed by this.... i figured it would have taken at least a couple days to be shipped but nope... they got it out the next day. The set i did was 10.5-14-18P-30W-42-52 in Nickel Wound and they sound and feel amazing on my strat... perfect!
I need strings that last and use a non-standard guage set. These are the best option I have come across at a very respectable cost for the product. I highly suggest that this is the way to go if you have similar needs.
These sound great, play great, are great. I have tried them all and this is all is use, they don't break, bed in quickly and have great tone. I use a hybrid set of 10's with a 52 bottom E and always had to buy sets and throw away the 46 but now Curt Mangan allow you to make up the set you want. What a fantastic idea why did not one do it before!!! it seems obvious but it took Curt to do it.
