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. Phosphor Bronze provides nice highs and lows, and pleasant subtle overtones. Phosphorous is used to help reduce tarnish and corrosion.
I love Curt Mangan's 12 string sets,I was looking for something to give a little boost to my Adamas 12 string when I found his brand and they sound fantastic I've been using them for quite awhile and think there the best,try them you on't be disappointed :)
I have used nothing but Mangan strings since they were suggested by a luthier friend almost 20 years ago. After playing guitar for over 50 years, I know I can rely on a superb product.
I had a customer of my guitar shop turn me onto these strings.. I love them, and they sound beautiful..
I started buying Curt Mangan strings for my guitars a little over a year ago,I was looking for something to give my 12 string Adamas 1688 a little extra and liked what I had read about Curt Mangan strings,I think they are superb quality,excellent sounding strings,I run them on all my Adamas guitars and even had a custom set put together for a vintage Ovation,his combination of string gauges work perfect for me and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
I've played for 40+ years, and when I got a new Taylor Auditorium body 12 string, I went thru a process of trying over a dozen brands of strings, to see which yielded the best tone and bass response. The auditorium body is a bit small to get the dominant bass response I'm used to, from bigger body guitars. This set yields the best overall tone, with the strongest bass response, without being muddy. In addition, the 10th string is wound, which gives a much fuller sound than the plain 10th strings found on most other sets. I play amplified, thru a Rivera Sedona, which is designed for the Taylor pickup system, and these strings yield the best amplified tone as well. I only play uncoated strings, and these stay live,(keep their tone)the longest of the uncoated strings. I'll stick with these, for this guitar.
