Alice AM04 Mandolin Strings - 8 String Set - 10-34
By: Vic on 11 April 2014Hey there, I only bought these strings because they were very cheap and I wanted to try out some light gauge tension on my old Gibson mandolin. I then intended to take them off and replace them with more expensive known brand strings. But the Alice strings are easy to play and really make the old Gibson sound good and twangy, so I'm going to leave them on.
By: Vic on 6 May 2013I didn't know what to expect with such a well priced set of strings, being copper wound rather than bronze or phosphorous. It did make the strings a little less bright, which wasn't such a bad thing. Mandolins can sometimes be quite sharp and harsh sounding and I liked the more darker tone of these strings.
