Phosphor Bronze wound strings were introduced in the early Seventies and have become the most popular acoustic string. Phosphor bronze wire is made from approximately 92% copper, 7% zinc and 1% phosphorous. Phosphor Bronze provides nice highs and lows with pleasant subtle overtones. Phosphorous is used to help reduce tarnish and corrosion.

    9 gauge acoustic strings!!!

    Posted by John-Jury Luis on 17th Sep 2020

    I LOVE these strings! I own 2 acoustic guitars for recording projects and gigs, and I'm always reluctant to play them due to the heavier gauge strings. I restrung them with the Mangan 9-42 set, and I instantly fell in love with my acoustic guitars. They're so much easier to play that I'm re-writing my next EP to include more acoustic parts. I've looked for 9 gauge acoustic strings for years, and I'm glad I found Curt Mangan online. These are a game changer for me. I was about to write a personal note of thanks before I received an invite to review the strings. I can't thank you enough, Curt and company. Quick delivery, exceptional packaging. I'll definitely order again!

    Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar strings

    Posted by Rick S. on 25th May 2019

    When I went to change the strings on my acoustic guitar I went looking for a set of "9's" only to find that nobody offered them! Then I remembered Curt Mangan and I was ecstatic to find exactly the string I was looking for... Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar strings "super-light". Once I put these on my guitar... it was like "magic". The feel, tone, play-ability, everything. All of a sudden my acoustic went from being just another guitar that I'd play because I needed to... to one that I play because I WANT to! The difference was that Curt Mangan Phosphor Bronze Acoustic guitar strings made well... THE difference! Plus, they come in sealed plastic packaging (like all Curt Mangan strings), they're made in the U.S.A. (like all... you get the idea). My acoustic guitar will never wear anything but Curt Mangan's from now on!

    9-42 Super Light Phosphor Bronze

    These strings are FANTASTIC! I installed them on a Fender Acoustasonic Stratocaster and they make it play smoother, faster and with the best tone that it's EVER had. Curt Mangan is the ONLY string manufacturer that offers this "Super Light" gauge Phosphor Bronze set. Which is only one reason why I'll keep coming back for more!

    9-42 Acoustic Strings

    Posted by Mark Daven on 9th Feb 2019

    Love them, all of my acoustics have them. I prefer 9 gauge on my electrics and have always wanted them for acoustic playing. The phosphor bronze tone really brings the guitars to life and the sound jumps right off the instrument and fills the room with sound. Excellent.
