As part of mandolin setup I will put on a new set of D'Addario J74 mandolin strings. For a $15 upgrade charge you can upgrade the mandolin strings from these strings.

  • D'Addario EXP74 Medium Gauge Coated Phosphor Bronze Strings
  • D'Addario EXP74CM Custom Medium Gauge Coated Phosphor Bronze Strings (Heavier E and A strings)
  • Elixir Nanoweb Medium Gauge Coated Strings

Phosphor Bronze strings were introduced to string making by D'Addario in 1974 and has become synonymous with warm, bright, and well balanced acoustic mandolin tone.  D'Addario Phosphor Bronze strings are precision wound with corrosion resistant phosphor bronze onto a carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel core.  The result is long lasting, bright sounding tone with excellent intonation.

D'Addario's EXP coated strings now feature plain steel strings and hexagonal cores made of our revolutionary NY High Carbon Steel.  Envisioned, perfected, and manufactured by D&Addario in New York, this newly engineered, break-resistant, high-carbon steel wire delivers unprecedented strength and pitch stability.  Combined with the highest quality wrap wire materials, precision drawn and micro-coated on our advanced proprietary machinery, each EXP set maintains that familiar uncoated tone while adding up to 4 times more life.   Elixir strings are the only coated string brand to protect the entire string with an ultra-thin coating, keeping gunk out of the gaps between the windings.  Players report their tone lasts longer than any other string, uncoated or coated, and they are ready to play whenever you are, smooth feel that is easy on your fingers and enhances playability.  with reduced finger squeak, they are good for both performance and recording.  With less hassle and expense of frequent string changes, you can spend more time making music.
