Farmingdale, N.Y. — D'Addario is excited to announce Flatwound Mandolin Strings as the newest addition to their string product line.
The Flatwound Mandolin strings are constructed using a complex combination of interlocking underwindings on a hex core, which builds the foundation for a delicate outer flat (ribbon) winding. This unique design allows the strings to vibrate freely, creating a true, clear sound and an ultra-smooth feel. Created for jazz, classical and folk players, they deliver unparalleled comfort for playing closed position fingerings and up the fretboard.
In addition to this new option for mandolin players, new sets are also available for bass and banjo.
"We are very pleased with the overall outcome of the new Flatwound Mandolin, Nylon Tapewound Bass, and Stainless Steel Banjo string sets," says D'Addario Product Management Manager, Brian Vance. "These sets broaden the versatility and tones that players currently strive for across the board."
The Flatwound Mandolin Strings will retail for $29.99; Nylon Tapewound Bass Strings will retail for $62.99, and Stainless Steel Banjo Strings will retail for $6.99. All of these new D'Addario string sets are available now.
