    Re: XT D'Addario Mandolin Strings?

    Re: XT D'Addario Mandolin Strings?

    I would have to agree with you, initially I just wasn't sure but after some hours of playing and couple days of settling in, I like them.

    Re: XT D'Addario Mandolin Strings?

    I too did the beta testing for the X series for guitar and was impressed with them. Curious of the mandolin set and how they will do.
