Delighted to find these. Now all I wish for would be an 80/20 set of Light/Medium, 12.5, 16.5,25.5,33.5,43.5 , 55.
I like playing in low open tunings, but find it difficult to find strings with a heavy bottom. It was nice to build my own custom set. That being said, my Yamaha 830, tuned to DADGAD flat, hated these strings. However my Taylor 410 tuned to open F loves these strings.
These strings, custom gauged for my needs, are simply amazing! Great value, and they sound great.
I was a longtime user of "M"-brand strings, but, when they stopped offering half-gauge strings, I had to go hunting. I ran across Curt Mangan's strings, and, as a bonus, discovered that I could create entire custom-gauge sets! AND, they sound great, and last long. Great prices, too, especially if you buy quantities.
