Excellent strings. The only ones I've found that will remain in tune when I use the Schaller D Tuners. I have these mounted for my second and fourth strings so I can switch quickly between double C, sawmill, and G minor tunings. The fourth string is listed as .040 inches but it is actually .024 when you use calipers. Also, listed as 0.60mm which is .024 if you do the math.

"Thomastik-Infeld banjo strings are part of the "Precision Steel" brand of strings which are made for violin, viola, cello, bass, mandolin & mandola. The wound strings are made of flat wound (ribbon) chrome steel. The treble strings are plain steel.

The grades of metal used are high European grade which adds a lot to the cost of production. Many mandolin players have found our Precision brand to be the ideal string for their instrument."
