I can't say enough about these strings. I don't understand the other reviewer's issues with these strings. I repair a lot of a-style or campfire mandolins, and every single mandolin that leaves my shop sports a set of these strings. I have yet to have any issues or any negative feedback about them. I also use them on my own A-style mandolin, and have never had an issue with them myself. They last as long as any other mandolin string that I know of. Are there better strings out there? Probably, but for the price, and as many as I purchase, I am not complaining, nor do I feel the need to have to try out other strings. Do I have any comparison, yes, as I do tend to try other strings out to look for the best possible sound for my own instrument, but these work great, and I feel no need to look any further for anything better.

ok these strings have the martin name on the box,and they say they go thru strict standards,believe me when i say that is not true,,these are the worst strings i have ever seen,,the end loop on the e strings was very large when i got them as a strung the instrument i found out why,,you tune them up and the sound just keeps going lower,this is because the loop is getting looser and looser and then it comes right out,i went thru 4 sets and everyone had the same thing happen,,i went thru 4 sets because i took pics of the problem and a video to show how careful i was stringing the mando,,and sent them to martin customer service,,i have 4 more sets that i will be doing a youtube video with,i have been playing for almost 30 yr's and have 6 guitars 2 mando's a banjo and bass,,,i know how to set up and play many instruments and worked as an intrument tech for yr's in oklahoma,my wife play's mando and my 4 children play guitars mando's and fiddle's,and i have taught many people to play,,so i hope you get the fact i know what im doing here,,martin please we respect and love the name martin in america to drop the ball on something like this is just terrible,,fix the problem please,the end loop is not far enough into the windings on these strings,dont waste your money,,"martin company" whats going on here will you soon become "wal-martin"with these cheap vendors making your strings and guitars

            We all need strings. These sound good. Better, at least, than the strings my mandolin came with. They improved the sound immensely.
