I used Curt Mangan nickel wound for years and thought I would try these. Not sure what it is but it just feels and sounds so comfortable. My new favorite.
I bought a few of this set to put on a Tele and Fender/Charvel 24 fret...these are very good sounding guitars...but these strings make the guitars sound world class. It's as if the guitars were tecorded and mastered by a great audio engineer. They feel great as well.
Great strings, great service!
I only play Curt Mangan strings — for me, the quality, tone, playability, and longevity are second to none. I am very selective (picky) about my strings. What I really appreciate is the ability to create a set with my specific gauge preferences, which are not available in off-the-shelf sets. I am completely satisfied with all aspects of Curt Mangan strings and can recommend them without reservation. Thanks Curt!!
The best strings that I have played! Excellent quality, tone, longevity. Curt Mangan knows his stuff!!
I've just strung up two of my main guitars with these strings - so far, I'm really liking the feel and the sound. The round core and nickel are getting harder and harder to find these days. A big thumbs up!
Nice to have the ability to purchase custom gauged string sets.
Great strings, I've never been too picky about strings but these are high quality and have opened up the tone of my Stratocaster! I don't have enough kind words for you guys! Thank you again!
I have been playing guitar for over 20 years and had eventually sort of "stuck" with my usual brand of strings because they were the ones that worked for me -- not that they excited me to play exactly, they just worked. For some odd reason, I decided to try something different and ordered my first-ever custom set of round core pure nickels -- the round core being new to me (I've always played hex cores). After receiving my strings in a very professional-looking sealed package (looks like I just bought it off the rack at the store), I was immediately blown away by three things: 1. The round cores feel great under my fingers, are easy to bend and sound fantastic (a nod to the pure nickel windings), 2. The customer service was amazing -- although I live at the top of the world (a mere iceberg to the east from Barrow, Alaska) my strings arrived within a week (faster than even Amazon Prime), and 3. I got to pick my own gauges (including half sizes)! My conclusion: I will never buy mass-produced strings again when I can get this level of sound, feel, and customer service for about the same price as other "premium" strings. Thanks, Curt, for getting me excited about playing again – you rock!
