    Re: do many fo you mix strings

    I have in the past but found the hassle of it not worth the small change in tone and playability. I have learned how to make standard sets sound like I want them to sound.

    Re: Mando Tasting, interested in your vote.

    I really liked number 2. Fat tone with great clarity and note separation. Not too much sustain. Just about perfect in my view.
