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."

February 16, 2012 | Good news for mandolaists. Enhanced JD13 flatwound strings!

If your CGDA tuned mandola has Weber style tailpiece, or runs longer than a 16" scale, you're probably having problems shopping for flatwound strings that fit. The warm tone and smooth feel of the JD13 JazzDola strings would not work on your instrument--until now...

Weber tailpiece--string loops all the way to the end of the top.

We've addressed this in our most recent batch of these popular strings with enhanced lengths, an additional two inches:

OLD
JazzDola JD 13 (as of 12/2011)
.013--1st string 29" (plain, no winding)
.022--2nd string 24" (plus 4-1/2" of red silk winding)
.033--3rd string 24" (plus 4-1/2" of red silk winding)
.043--4th string 24" (plus 4-1/2" of red silk winding)
Strings include 1-1/2" of winding on the loop end on above specs:

NEW
.013--1st string 31" (plain, no winding)
.022--2nd string 26" (plus 4-1/2" of red silk winding)
.033--3rd string 26" (plus 4-1/2" of red silk winding)
.043--4th string 26" (plus 4-1/2" of red silk winding)

Strings include 1-1/2" of winding on the loop end on above specs.

We outlined the problem in our Tips column on using the Thomastik 174W octave mandolin in a recent article on mandola string lengths, see "A good fit. Measuring up mandola strings." The JD13 run about half the cost and gauging a tad thinner, 13 22 33 43.
