    Read a review on TGP and thought I'd give them a try. Got the nickel-plated steel wound 10-46. I'm a tough sell when it comes to strings as I've been playing for 35 yrs and have tried many. These are the bomb, great feel, tone, longevity and intonation. I immediately ordered a 6 pack then went to Curt's web site and got a 6 pack of strings ( kidding, just the strings)

    Great strings

    Posted by Ingemar Nilsson on 5th Nov 2013

    I´ve tried both Elexir and D´Addrio but these are just the best. I´ve never broken a string since I start to use them.

    I have always used Ernie Ball strings in the past 3years, but after putting Curt Mangan on my Paul Reed Smith swamp ash my Guitar came to life. I will always use them in the future,also very fast shipping.

    1st time buyer - GREAT STRINGS

    Posted by Russell on 10th Aug 2012

    I decided to string out these strings after reading several recommendations on forums - glad I did! I am a professional musician and could tell instantly that these are quality strings from the tone and tuning stability. After 40 years, I have no reason to look elsewhere for a better strings.

    A cut above other strings

    Posted by Dave on 6th Aug 2012

    My luthier recommended this. He has been a luthier for about 35 years, and is the best one I have ever found. I thought - strings are strings. But these really sound better, and definitely last longer

    I have, over the last 45 years, have used every string out there, from mapps and black diamonds to ernie balls and boomers, and these are, by far, the smoothest, nicest tone, simply the best strings I have ever used, and from now on, they are the only strings I will use..I'll be ordering 12 more sets very soon. Thanks for a Great product. Bob V.

    My guitar stays in tune and Mangan strings keep the intonation consistent set after set.
