Love these strings!!!!!
November 10, 2017
I recently got a new mandolin and put these on because what came with were corroded and nasty. I like 'em a lot. They have a great feel and sound good whether I am chording or soloing. And once I dial 'em in, they hold their tune very nicely. I'm done switching from string to string. These are all I plan on using from here on out.

I am not a bluegrass player.They are flatwound (not like J74)and are almost as good as Thomastik ($48).You can save a lot of money and buy extra single E and A strings.I play folk rock country blues and jazz on a Flatiron A, a Breedlove KO, a Fender mandostrat,and a Godin A8. They all sound great.

Great strings at an affordable price

I love these strings! I've been playing on J74s and would actually try to avoid changing strings because a new set sounded way too bright to me. These strings sound more mellow and natural to me and I think the sound of the flat wound strings matches the unwound A and E strings much better.

Very nice string--feels terrific of course, and sounds good. Less ring and sustain than bronze, to my ear will make a woody sounding mandolin woodier, but sings a bit more than steel or monel usually do. Wound strings are a little lighter than roundwounds, good attack.

Nice option for FW - Hardly the same as J74's

Interesting addition to the flat wound mandolin string market. I have been enjoying the first set so far.

I think the other reviewer as left a review for the wrong strings, as the FW74's could not be much more different from J74's. Plain steel versus phosphor bronze and flat would versus round wound.

Also, these are a cheap way to try flat wounds, compared to TI's at around $30 a set.

Really, quite different.

These strings are really not like the J74 at all. These FW74 are chrome flatwound, meaning they are smooth. The J74 is a bronze roundwound.
