At the risk of repeating a query that may be all over the archives:
I'm looking for an appropriate gauge of strings on the medium light side for my National Steel tenor tuned as an octave mandolin - I've been experimenting with single strings and it's starting to get expensive! I don't see a decent set on Elderly or other sites - the (limited) octave mando sets all seem a bit on the heavy side. Suggestions?
obrigado, Will
