Bright, beautiful tone.
GHS's strong reputation for instrument strings goes well beyond guitars and basses. In fact, GHS is also renowned amongst folk and traditional musicians thanks to their wide array of mandolin strings, and this section offers more than enough examples. A leader in string manufacturing since 1964, GHS's strings are crafted with careful attention to even the smallest detail to ensure they not only feel and sound great, but hold up through countless amounts of use. No doubt, whether you regularly hit the festival circuit or simply play for fun, GHS has a set of mandolin strings for every taste and playing style.
Before choosing a set of GHS mandolin strings, it's best to get a good idea of what certain string sets can offer you in a sound. For example, phosphor-bronze strings are known for having a bright and rich tone, and GHS offers a variety of choices, including the Phosphor-Bronze Ultra-Light Mandolin Strings. Ultra-light strings are flexible and easy on the fingers, and the Phosphor-Bronze Ultra-Light Strings in particular sound great for both Celtic and bluegrass musical genres.
While you're at it, you might want to take a look at the Bright Bronze Medium Light Mandolin Strings. Producing an even tone and impressive range that stretches from mellow to powerful depending on how you strum or pluck, these strings are versatile and they stay in tune exceptionally well. Now, for those who play with magnetic pickups, check out the Stainless Steel Mandolin Strings. The preferred choice of pickers, stainless steel strings provide a heavier bass sound, and their dynamic projection matches tremendously well with acoustic-electric mandolins.
Of course, there is really no right or wrong answer when it comes to mandolin strings. It all comes down to personal preference, and when you go with GHS, you can have additional peace of mind knowing that the strings you're using have been tried and tested by folks who are just as passionate about playing as you are.
