    Have any of you tried Curt Mangan strings on your guitars? Thoughts. I'm using NYXL's right now.

    I use their nickel wound steel for guitar. Unless you go with a stainless string, the HF response of the pure nickel or nickel wound won't equal that of the NYXLs.

    I use Matt Schofield signature set 11-54 on my PS. The NYXLs feels stiffer but sounds just as good.

    Thank you both for the feedback. I've tried NYXL strings. I thought they were a little bright sounding. I'm hoping the Curt Mangan's will be a little more balanced. I have a Custom 24 with 85/15 pickups. I'm thinking I might be on the right path as it relates to the Mangan strings.
