Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

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.
