Resonator Guitar Strings
Phosphor Bronze wound strings were introduced in the early Seventy??s 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 pleasant subtle overtones. Phosphorous is used to help reduce tarnish and corrosion.
These strings give me a clean, clear sound that makes my dobro stand out in a crowd. I've tried other brands and always keep coming back to these for the sound I like. Thanks for a great product.
These strings are great. I used to buy 2 sets of other brands to mix and match gauges to get the "perfect" set for both my reso and my lapsteel. With the CM "bluegrass" series, I can buy one set—with all the correct gauges—AND they sound fantastic. They aren't overly-bright on the high end, and have a real even tone/volume from the low G to the high D.
I have a heavy hand on Dobro. I play mainly blues licks and use it for power chords to back up my guitar player. No matter what strings I use, I burn through them weekly but Curt Mangan strings give true intonation and clear tone longer than any others I have tried.
