I play every day. If I loosen these strings to make an adjustment, when I tighten them up again the winding on the tailpiece comes loose. Very aggravating since you cannot rewind them. Makes a new , unused set of strings sort of useless because the "e " is the only one that breaks.

            Takes several days to break in and sometimes the loop will come open and a string has to be replaced. Hard to find new singles. Otherwise they are good strings.

                          I used a lot of different string over the 45 years I've been Playing mandolin, and the D'ADDARIO strings have by far out lasted, and held the quality of the sound I've been looking for. I highly recommend them.
