    The best

    Posted by Dean P Elwood on 16th Jul 2020

    I've been playing for nearly 40 years and can say these are without any doubt the best strings I have ever used (I've been using CM for about 3 years now). Simply put, they last longer, stay brighter and I have never broken one. Being able to make up custom sets is a nice touch too.

    Well pleased

    I've never done custom gauged strings before but wanted to do two experiments, first going with a properly defined set of strings with balanced tension and also to go to a lighter gauge to do some personal tone tests. The strings sound and feel great and the only downside is that I will have to order more.

    My favourite strings by far. Got turned on to CM by the guys on That Pedal Show. Picking a custom set for my needs has been fantastic. Can't speak highly enough about the quality too.

    RockBeach Guitars Signature Set

    Posted by Gregory V Bogoshian on 18th Oct 2019

    In one word, MAGIC!!! Gauges are 9.5-12.5-18-26-38-48. Highs sparkle with extreme control and range on bends which are smooth as silk. Mids cut through the mix without stepping on the vocals, and bottom end is big and articulate without a trace of mud... They play like a dream and even our music director commented how much he loved my tone the first time I played them at rehearsal! One other word: Transformative! You will LOVE these strings!!!

    NickelWound Electric Guitar Strings

    Posted by Gary Granger on 12th Aug 2019

    I really like the feel of these strings. I have played Ernie B and D'Add strings for decades and these strings really sound amazing! But the feel of the wound strings was unexpected and addictive. Buy them!

    Custom string sets

    Posted by Kevin on 6th Jul 2019

    The Curt Mangan nickelwound strings are my favorite strings to play. I love the freedom offered with the customized sets. Before I would have to buy three sets of strings just to get the gauge combo that I wanted. These strings provide an easy solution to that problem. I will definitely be buying again!
