D'Addario Mandolin Strings

Is variety the spice of life? If it is, D'Addario mandolin strings are blazing hot because D'Addario offers the most varied strings of any manufacturer.

We offer more than 20 different sets of D'Addario mandolin strings. They come in seven flavors:

• Nickel bronze strings are the company's premium uncoated strings. Expect great clarity, resonance, projection, and balance, along with harmonically rich overtones.

• XT Treated strings have a natural feel yet last an unnaturally long time with higher breakage tolerances.

• EXP coated strings last up to 4 times longer than uncoated strings, yet offer the same robust tone along with great pitch stability.

• Phosphor bronze strings are known for their tone: warm, bright, and well balanced. Excellent intonation is a bonus.

• 80/20 bronze strings have a vintage tone that's crisp, deep, and projecting, making them ideal for recording. They also provide excellent intonation.

• Stainless steel/nickel wound strings deliver a sound that's bright and tight, a textured feel, and corrosion resistance. They're designed to work especially well with magnetic pickups.

• Flat Tops and Flatwound strings have smooth surfaces and warm tones.

• Monel strings are made from a vintage alloy that produces a balanced, very natural tone.
