It's a 7-String Thing!
Wow...a company that makes strings for 7 string bass, and GREAT strings at that! They are snappy-bright when I need it and full and warm. I'll be getting all my strings from you now! Visit my SoundCloud page under Chris Chesna for the track "Renegade" that I wrote and recorded with my signature light gauge Curt Magnon strings on my Conklin GT-7.
Custom guage bass strings
I've been playing my first set of custom guage bas strings, and they won't be the last! I play with a pick, and tend to have a heavy attack, and these strings are showing almost no wear, where my previous brand would have lost most of the brightness. I won't use another string but Mangan's!
Custom Wound Bass String Sets
Absolutely THE Best strings available. I've used almost every string out there since 1973, and these are the best I've played. The ability for me to custom order individual gauges combined with the tone and sustain of these strings seals the deal.
45-125 Nickel Wound Medium 4 String BEAD Tuning Bass Set
What can I say, my 5-String jazz bass came to life! Awesome tone, so even across the entire neck! This is my 3rd set and I'm not going back to anything else. Customer service was excellent! Good stuff!
Custom nickel Bass strings
I'm on my 2nd set of these, put them on both my bass guitars. Great tone, feel, sustain and slap back pop goodness! Hear me play Curt Mangan strings at RaveXmusic.bandcamp.com
Custom Bass Strings
Again, I couldn’t be happier with my Mangan’s!!!
Great bass strings
Heard about these strings a few times on the internet and decided to give them a try. I love that i could make a custom set to my preference. The strings have a great feel with killer lows and growly mids and a smooth to end that isnt overbearing. Already ordered a second set and will be buying more!
First time user
I’m going to keep this brief. This was my first order from Curt and won’t be my last. The feel and tone are outstanding. I’m switched for life. My basses won’t be having any other string on them
5 string nickel wound bass strings.
I am fully convinced that these are the best strings on the market. I started using them on my 7 string Conklin and now have them of my 5 and 6 string basses The balance is as good as it gets and the playability is exceptional. Highly recommended.
6 string nickel wound bass strings
All strings manufactured by this company are the best I have ever used, I also use them on my 7 string Conklin bass and they sound fantastic . soft to the touch but perfectly balanced in sound and tension I cant recommend them enough !
