The Curt Mangan® Company believes all players deserve and demand a premium string with sonic clarity like no other. After being part of a major string companies team for 17 years, Curt decided is was time to produce strings that are FusionMatched® and create a tone that is pure and perfect.
FusionMatched® is our trademarked proprietary method that combines the highest quality, 100% made in the USA wire and 100% USA workmanship to produce strings with exacting core-to-wrap ratios and tolerances.

"Real Strings Real Tone™" "That what we do. We did not reinvent the string, but we make the best string money can buy and we make it the same way from the same materials every time. We do not shop around for the lowest price on wire. We purchase our premium wire from the same source... all the time. We do not coat our strings and we do not follow several automatic manufacturing techniques that may actually increase string breakage. All of this helps provide strings with maximum longevity. Our Strings are not for everyone, but they are perfect for those tired of mass-marketed products and manufacturing mediocrity, String tone is our passion as guitar players and as string industry veterans. Curt Mangan® FusionMatched® strings are the best strings, period!"

These strings look interesting, Bjorn and seem to match the stock Rickenbacker 12 string set. Have you heard reviews from people who have used them on their Rickenbacker guitars?

I have used the 6 string pack and it's a good choice!
You should really give them a try.

While they are all nickel, I am assuming that they are a wound round string. Is that true? Are the compressed as the RIC strings are?

I read on the package and there is no clear information about the specifications.
Here is their homepage but it doesn't seem provide much more information.

They are Roundwound, in the same gauges as the Rickenbacker sets. We are now stocking them in Nickel wound as well as Pure Nickel. Feel free to email with additional questions.

Thanks for your comments, Bjorn and Chris. I am curious as to what string company Curtmangen Strings used to work for.
