GHS Phosphor Bronze Mandolin Strings, Light Gauge 10-38
The boys at Backstage Music like GHS strings. They make their own strings, and seal each string in a gas-tight package filled with nitrogen. This means no corrosion, your strings are always factory-fresh. Even if you tuck a set of GHS strings away in your mandolin case, and find them two years later, no big deal. The strings will still be minty-fresh.
Here's how the GHS folks describe their mandolin string packs:
Our Americana Series addresses four elements crucial to producing the world's first series of strings directed to the needs of players performing within this exciting genre of contemporary music. Our own roots go back decades as one of the premier string manufacturers with an abundance of knowledge in string design that incorporates innovation into materials selection and string construction while utilizing preferred gauging based on many years of input from our GHS Artist Family. Add in cryogenic treatment to extend the life and enhance the tone for a series of strings that will have acoustic guitarists, bluegrass players, country, blues, R&B and roots-rock performers embracing the GHS Americana Series of strings.
