    Nickel bass strings

    These strings are incredible. (Nickel) I also ordered a set of stainless steel. I can't wait to string up the set of stainless.. Don't buy any other strings. You will not be disappointed.

    I tried and played these for the first time and loved them. Nothing but high quality tone. These strings sound and perform great! I will be using these on all my other basses.

    I purchased my first set of these strings to put on my USA G&L JB2 a few months ago. I immediately liked them but didn't fully realize how great they are until my new USA G&L SB2 arrived. I'm not sure what G&L stocks on them but they have been shr

    Hands down. The best (bass) strings on the market. As a player and tech, I highly recommend Curt Mangan strings to all my bandmates and customers. Thanks Curt!

    I've been using these strings for a number of years. Great sound and value. Main issue is the postage to Australia is very high and takes 2 weeks from placing order to arrive. Worth the wait though!

    Excellent; swear by them and still can't believe how underrated these strings are.

    Smooth and Balanced Bass Strings

    Posted by BN on 31st Aug 2017

    I bought a custom Muckelroy fretless bass that came with these strings. I'd never heard of Curt Mangan strings before, but I was impressed with them, particularly the silky smooth feel. The set on the bass was a bit old, so I ordered some new ones from Curt. Big difference, as the new strings were much brighter, but still had that smoothness and great balance in tone. After using these strings for a couple of months, I doubt I'll ever string this bass with anything else. I've played a long time and tried a lot of strings and these deliver exactly what I want at a fantastic price. The bass is a pleasure to play, and the smoothness of the strings allows me to play for long periods with little wear. My highest recommendation for these, especially for fretless players who want a round wound string.

    Great strings

    Posted by Mike on 9th Aug 2017

    Just bought a Sire Marcus Miller bass. Was not really happy with the D'Addario strings on it. Not bad strings, just not the sound I was looking for. I had previous experience with the Mangan strings from ordering replacements for my new 7-string bass with great results. This 4-string set did not disappoint. Full of tone, especially the mid-range prominence that nickel strings give (which I love for finger-style funk), smooth finger feel and just enough bottom end - especially for light gauge strings - to keep the presence in the mix. Highly recommended strings!
