Thread: Eastman MD350 strings

    Default Eastman MD350 strings


    I am a beginner. I broke an E string last night tuning my Eastman MD350. I am not sure what brand/gauge of strings are on this instrument. What should I consider as a replacement set? I am out of commission until I can purchase a replacement set. Suggestions please? Also, can I replace just the broken string or do I need to replace both E strings or the entire set of strings?

    Thanks!

    Go ahead and replace the whole set. D’Addario EJ74s are the standard for many, and something like that probably came on your mandolin. I like strings a tad lighter and usually use medium-lights by GHS. Back when I had my Eastman my favorite strings on it were DR brand 11s. Try a bunch and find a favorite.

    I put a set of D'Addario NBM1140 Nickel Bronze Mandolin Strings 11-40 on my Eastman MD305, they really made a difference. I'm still on a journey with my Collings though.

    D’Addario EJ74s are the standard from the factory on Eastman mandolins and guitars.
