Comments about D'Addario J62 80/20 Phosphor Bronze Mandolin Strings:
Yeah, these are inexpensive, that's why I tried them, ordered three sets. After putting a set on the first thing I noticed was that the E strings were VERY quiet. Overall my mandolin is quitar with these strings. The G,D,& A strings sounded balanced, but the high E I could barely hear, quite a different level than the others. The other thing I don't like about these strings is that even after 3+ hours of playing they are still stretching out. I'm having to tune them after every song. All strings have an "adjustment period" where they stretch out and then settle down. Maybe these will after another hour or two, but that's just too darned long. I think I'm going to return the other two sets and get something a little higher quality.
