Great for lead players
December 20, 2020
Even though I am 70 and have been playing electric guitar for 64 years and classical guitar for 56, I got my first 6-string acoustical guitar only 22 years ago. Since starting, I've been looking for a standard acoustical string set that will enable me to play as I do on an electric guitar - with bendability and sensitivity.

The gauges on the .010" - .052" Curt Mangan set is nearly identical to the electric set I use. It's true that with light gauge strings, acoustical guitars lose power and requires one to pick lighter, but my acoustical guitar is being run through the P.A. at almost every performance, so power and tone can be adjusted at the board.

I like the acoustical tone of these strings just fine, although I've heard some better and I've heard even more that are much worse. The final consideration is: How long do they stay fresh?" That variable remains to be seen as time goes on and I try more sets of these strings.
ProsI can get them for a reasonable price at Just Strings any time. Great gauges for lead players. Good tone.
ConsVery few players have heard of the brand and therefore, are reluctant to try them, even though they are unhappy with their go-to brand.
