    Re: Thomastik-Infeld Strings

    Flatwound TI strings are an acquired taste I reckon. Nice to the fingers. Don't seem to cut in a group setting.

    Tried mittel and starks. Sounded the same when I took them off as when new.

    Re: D'Addario Monel sets

    Currently have the Mangan Monel custom mediums on my Derrington F5. My favorite strings on that Mando.
    Those strings and a full-contact bridge are a good combo on it.
