Product Reviews for D'Addario Mandolin Phosphor Bronze Bluegrass, .010 - .038, J73
D'Addario Mandolin Phosphor Bronze Bluegrass, .010 - .038, J73Terry R. KirbyAugust 4, 2010Although my ovation takes ball ends, it is worth the trouble to use these. (I just put balls in the loops.) Reason: Unless I use a .038 on the 4th the MM68 is not properly intonating there. This has a .038. The .024 is also to spec and intonates well and although the mandolin specs call for .011 & .016 1st & 2nd, the .010 & .014 work beautifully, are a bit easier in my fingers and are in great intonation. In short, if you have an MM68, these are worth trying.
