March 12, 2011 | We're thinking 'dola. Strings.
Word is out on the JazzMando JM11 strings, but not everyone is aware of the bigger sister JD13 "JazzDola" version, designed especially for 16-17" scale mandolas. Like the others in the JM family of strings, they yield a tamer series of overtones, rich in fundamental and round in tenor warmth.
Of course, they are more expensive initially than the phosphor bronze competitive product, but since they yield 3-4 times the string life, in the long run they really aren't any more of an investment. We've also dialed back the gauging, so their 13-43 gg are also easier on the fingers.
Pick up a set and try them out for yourself!
