Flatwound strings for Octave Mandolin
Does anyone know of a source for flatwound strings for a 23 3/4" scale octave mandolin? The only thing I have found so far has been on emando.com. They have a 5-string flatwound set. I could use the bottom 4 strings, which would match the gauge of what I have on currently. But I would be buying and wasting 2 strings AND I would have to buy two sets for a standard 8-string set. I am hoping someone has info on a complete set of OM flatwounds.
