Mandolin/Mandola

"These strings for both plucked instruments are flat wound on chrome steel and finely polished, except the plain E-string of the Mandolin which is made of tinned silver steel. They have a steel core made of special alloy with high elasticity and durability. The sound of the Mandolin is clear, brilliant, not metallic and the construction helps in excellent form the Tremolo play by less resonance of the strings, which is well-defined for this instrument. The strings for the Mandola are tuned stronger and are particularly smooth and this construction provides for less internal movement. Therefore the sound is round, living, voluminous, not metallic. The strings for both instruments are easy in handling, have a long duration of life and [are] in perfect fifths. "
