Product Reviews for D'Addario Mandocello Phosphor Bronze, .022 - .074, J78

D'Addario Mandocello Phosphor Bronze, .022 - .074, J785A.W. FeidlerFebruary 28, 2010These strings have a great tone, but as far as i know, they only come in loop ends, so if you have an Eastman or an Ovation, you have some extra work in store for you. One fix i found, although it's time consuming, is taking the ball ends from a set of old guitar strings (my local music store gave me some discards) and wind the loops around the ball. One has to be very careful doing this, not to compromise the strength and integrity of the loop in the process. I weakened one enough that it broke immediately in tensioning. The others have held well though. Bottom line is, with more mandocello options, string makers need to accommodate for other tailpieces or instrument builders need to standardize the tailpieces to loop ends.

"D'Addario's banjo sets are available in light and medium gauges, with a nickel-plated wound 4th string. Our bluegrass set is offered with a phosphor bronze-wound 4th string for extra brilliance and sustain. A complete range of mandolin-family strings is available, as well as various string lines for dulcimer, ukulele, tenor guitar, country fiddle, cuatro, oud, and bouzouki. D'Addario prides itself on offering quality strings for every popular stringed instrument available. Unfortunately, economic reasons and a lack of technical information prevent us from carrying stock sets for certain obscure or special instruments. Custom designed and manufactured strings can be made for a reasonable cost, presuming accurate specifications about the instrument can be provided."
