I just got a set of Curt Mangan 11-52 (largest size my Mitchell Acoustic was made to use) Phosphor Bronze.
Like you I love Elixir Nano-web Phosphor Bronze coated strings on my 79 Takamine F-349 (known as a Martin D-17 lawsuit)But I don't think it rivaled the Martin tone.It was previously given to my mom by Carol and I for Christmas 1979 and was the best sounding guitar we could afford at that time. I put EXP's on it after mom passed away in 2005 and then replaced them with Elixirs in 2018 at the suggestion of my Son in Law. It really woke that guitar up and made it pleasurable to play. What I am more concerned with while nice to have more volume is how tone compares to Elixirs Nano-web PB's. Also how the string compares tonally to John Pearce. The Pearce have been the best sounding strings on the Mitchell Acoustic Electric but Elixir on the Tak. Funny how a particular string efforts different guitars.
