Curt Magnan has given me the opportunity to review my favorite strings for my Guild Westerly D140. And I am jumping on that invitation. Harmonics, sustain, dynamics and the ability to bend are all ear pleasing. Projection allows the guitar to cut through when jamming with others. These strings last as well as sounding better as they age adding fuller sounding bass and softer but clear midrange. The top end doesnt change as the set ages. Great sounding throughout the lifespan. My go to set. Highly recommended.

I put these on my octavius bouzouki and they sound fantastic! I have only had them on for a couple of weeks, but they are perfect.

I Highly recommend these strings. I will try them on my guitar next.

The best sounding acoustic string, period!
5 Stars

The best sounding acoustic string, period! The strings have an almost "blooming" quality when strummed. The sound has a great balance and excellent projection. To top it off, the feel of the strings is good, to boot. Highly recommended!

Simply thrbest!

I've been playing Curt Magnan strings exclusively now for several years. The best sounding, most playable strings afailable at any price. I am involved in a new music project, and I just gifted my new guitar player a set of Curt Magnan....

All about the tone and feel

I am a former electric lead player who now plays more acoustic. The traditional light fit my "lead" style of playing perfectly. Playing a beautiful old Martin D28, the brightness perfectly balances the great big "bottom" sound of my guitar. Lastly, nothing ha a better feel than a new set of these strings. I am a fan for life!
