Curt Mangan SSW Medium Gauge
This product is excellent, as is the price. These strings are vibrant and have a rich tonal quality.

I am a 40-year veteran of professional guitar and vocal performances. I take two guitars on stage with me, a Tele and a Strat. The Tele I tune to concert pitch and use these strings in a light gauge. They are superb. There's just something about pure stainless steel that does it for me.

The Strat, I tune a full step below concert for songs that are a little higher than I want to sing them in standard 440. The medium strings generate a deep, rich tone that deliver its own brand of fascination for the audience. The mediums don't buzz or rattle. It's like they were made for the dropped tuning. I am principally a balladeer, so warm and smooth is my stock-in-trade and both gauges deliver that. But the mediums are also good at 440. Stevie Ray used .13 on his Strats, though which brand, I am not sure. Anyway, I doubt they would excel Curt Mangan's offering in pure stainless steel. Great is great!
