    As a 66 year old Rocker/ Fusion player I put these strings on my Jackson DK@ Pro. The Seymour Ducan pickups woke up. Bright highs and tight mids tones, and not over whelming bass. tune quickly and great for a Floyd Rose bridge.

    Great Tele Tone

    Posted by Duval Jr on 7th Aug 2017

    These strings have crazy good tone on my Tele. Most strings you can't really tell the difference, but with these you can.

    Best strings on the planet

    I'm a guitar tech, builder and have been playing since age 6. Curt Mangan Strings are consistent set to set and they feel great and sound fantastic. They also last a lot longer than other strings, especially in the humid climate of southwest Louisiana.
