    .011 through .048 plain 3rd

    These are a near perfect Guage for open G tuning. To make them perfect (for me), I order a handful of .012's to go with each set. This gives me a somewhat slinky B string, to facilitate bending.
    Curt Mangan is a Rock Star, and I won't buy strings from anyone else. Cheers!

    The best strings I’ve found

    Posted by Mark Thibodeau on 25th Oct 2019

    I’ve been searching for a few years for strings for my two electrics (An American Professional Strat in ash and a Gretsch G5420T). I’ve tried many brands.... EB, D’Addario, GHS, Dean Markley, Fender, DR, Pyramid, Thomastic etc etc. I haven’t found as good a sounding or feeling string than Mangan’s. I use 10.5-50’s on my Strat and 11-48 on the Gretsch. They’re perfectly balanced, bright without any harshness, stay in tune with trem use, intonate very well and last a long time. I couldn’t be more pleased.
