J73 D'Addarios on my Ovation MM68
Although 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.

Wasn't sure I needed new strings on my mandolin. I changed them anyway, putting on the D'Addario J73 set. What a difference! Beautiful tone and sustain compared to whatever I had on there before. Great price, too. Recommended.

Just put these on a customer's Ibanez mandolin. After a lot of work and a nice setup they sound great. They really pop and have a nice sustain that works well with this mandolin.

These are great! A hair lighter than the traditional bluegrass strings, these make my Phoenix mandolin sparkle a bit more and are a touch easier on the fingers.
