    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

    The Best!

    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!

    54-105 NickleWound Bass Strings

    Posted by Phil Harman on 7th Nov 2018

    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!

    the ONLY bass strings I need!

    Posted by Susan Dirks on 1st Apr 2014

    Tried 'em all, and these are the best! Recommended by the maker of my custom Birdsong Corto Bass, and the resonance and sustain are remarkable with these strings. They bring out the best in my playing.

    Best Strings I have ever used !!!!

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Mar 2014

    I have been using these strings for the last 5 years. The tension is like I am using 100's so they are very easy to play. They last a long time and the tone is so round and even throughout all the strings. I have never had a bad string in all the times I have been using them. I would never use any other strings. Before I found these I spent over 6 months trying every string out there, but none played and sounded like these. Now if Curt would just sell a flat wound, I would be one satisfied Bass Player.
