    Best strings ever.

    Posted by Matt B. on 7th Aug 2018

    I've been using Curt's strings for about a year now and they are simply amazing. They are the only string maker out there that offers the specific custom gauges that address the tension issues that exist in standard gauge strings and I am able to put together a set that sits (tension-wise) right between 9s and 10s. The also seems to last a while, at least for me. I'm not using the coated version, BTW.

    I'm using Mangan strings on all of guitars right, save my 12 strings. I need to sit down and put together a set for that guitar. ;)

    Mangan Custom 8-set string paks

    Posted by Greg Williams on 19th May 2018

    Like many players who have been buying strings for most of their lives, l've run the gamut of various string brands, looking for a great sounding, durable, & reasonably priced product. These Mangan Nickle Wounds are perfect for me. The ability to build a high quality string set with the exact gauges that work for me is a welcome reality. You'll really save money over trying to cobble a set together from 6 single strings over the counter, if you're lucky enough to find a store with your gauges in stock. Curt Mangan is offering a solid deal with these custom 8-paks. (And you can even have you name, your band's name, or current project printed on the label...if you're so inclined.) lt's a Win/Win.

    Custom Built Nickel Plated Steel Signature Plain 3rd

    Posted by Matt Boynton on 4th Dec 2017

    Curt's strings are as good as anything out there and the gauge selection can't be beat. I was finally able to make the perfect set of strings that were not only balance well, string to string, but that also were right in between 9s and 10s tension-wise. I will continue to use Curt's strings for as long as they make them.

    For the hard-to-please

    Posted by Alec on 12th Jan 2017

    I'd long been dissatisfied with the feel of other strings: 9.5 sets felt too floppy on the wound strings while 10s were too stiff on the plain strings. With custom sets, I can get the tension on each string optimized for my playing style. Having my name on each pack is a nice stroke of the ego, too.

    My New Brand

    Posted by @GuitarPublisher on 11th May 2016

    I have been using Tomastik-Infeld Power Brights professionally as a full-time musician for the last 12 years. After recent suspicions of quality loss, and incessantly rising prices for their strings, I finally started to look elsewhere. Brand loyalty kept me in as long as it did, but c'mon already on the price!
    I am so glad I found Curt Mangan mentioned on a forum discussion online. I'm surprised I haven't come across this brand before. After visiting their website and seeing they are USA made I inquired further. I received same day replies to my questions, and learned that I can make custom gauged sets. Too cool! I had to order a box. I figured if I didn't love them I could use them on office guitars or gift them to students as practice incentives.
    I am happy to say that I will be using these strings exclusively on my PRS 2005 McCarty, and 2006 Custom Shop LP for shows and gigs. These strings have a wonderful tone, and an equally wonderful playing experience. My first set still looks and sounds brand new after practicing for a week on them and doing a couple 3-set shows on them two nights in a row. I couldn't be happier with the product, and am looking forward to making these my new brand of choice. Thank you!
