    best string ever used

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Aug 2012

    After reading much about Curt Mangan bass string (Scott Beckwith recommends them for his wonderful cortobasses) I decided to give it a try.
    These are simply fantastic strings!
    My comparison are the D'addario and GHS bass strings and I think I like the CM far more.

    1) They maintain tuning much better and longer

    2) The tone seems to be more consistent and last longer than the others

    3) CM string surface seems smoother

    4) If you use a 5 stringer the low B seems less floppy than the others.

    5) CM strings are cheaper and if you buy them from CM website you get a nice discount for bulk purchases.

    These are the strings I am going to use from now on!
