    About GHS Pure Nickel Mandolin Strings

    The strings custom gauges were chosen to provide a more balanced sound and give a comfortable feel across fingers and fretboard. They are perfect for players looking for authentic tone on vintage mandolins, or wanting more richness and depth of tone from new mandolins. The new Pure Nickel Mandolin strings are available in two gauge sets, from 010 1/2-039 to 011-041.

    Pure Nickel strings were commonly available in the 1950s and 60s. Their popularity waned when the increasing cost of nickel and number of rock players investigating the effects of "cranking up" encouraged string manufacturer to explore different metal mixes.
