New York, N.Y. — To celebrate the introduction of D'Addario's EXP74CM, a new custom medium coated mandolin set inspired by mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile, the Mandolin Cafe and D'Addario will launch a giveaway on December 24 with five winning entries selected at random December 31.
Each winning entry will receive 5 sets of D'Addario EXP74CM Mandolin string sets, a Planet Waves mandolin strap, NS Micro Tuner and Mandolin Capo.
No purchase is necessary to enter and the giveaway is open to all visitors to the Mandolin Cafe. The starting point for registration will be from a link on the Mandolin Cafe home page.
"This EXP coated phosphor bronze set is a custom-gauged hybrid based on Chris' preferred studio and tour setup," says Brian Johnson, D'Addario Product Specialist. "These strings feature warm and bright phosphor bronze tone with the optimal blend of playing tension and projection."
D'Addario's proprietary EXP coated mandolin strings now feature plain strings and hexagonal cores made of their revolutionary NY Steel. Envisioned, perfected, and manufactured by D'Addario in New York, this high-carbon hex core and plain steel wire have been meticulously engineered to be stronger and more consistent than any other standard musical wire, leading to a string with superior strength and pitch stability.
