strong and airy

this kind of strings feels right for my octave mandolin. The sound is bright and spacey, while also keeping a mellow and deep character on the lower strings

I use these (and EJ80s, which appear to be the same thing in a different package) on a Freshwater octave mandola. I'm mostly a chordal player so I want strings that respond well when I hit them hard -- these lose their initial janglyness fairly quickly, so they work well for me. Playing at a couple of sessions a week, I get through three or four sets of these in a year.

The top two courses are a bit light; I'd like it if they did a 46 32 24 14 set. But close enough!

Helped the Octave Mandolin Sing
Mark2784, 05.04.2014
The new Octave Mandolin was much improved with putting these strings on. The instrument really sings now. They have quickly settled in and are holding their tuning well. I would highly recommend these strings.

Goldene Mitte
E. aus M., 13.02.2019
Auf meiner nicht allzu großen Folk-Mandola mit 52er Mensur habe ich mehrere Saitensätze ausprobiert. Von D'Addario waren das EJ72 (light für Mandola), EJ76 (medium für Mandola) und schließlich dieser (EJ80 für Oktav-Mandoline) . EJ72 war etwas zu schwach und zu dünn, EJ76 klang voll +satt, hatte aber zuviel Saitenzug (schwer spielbar + Deformierung der Instrumentendecke).
EJ80 war in jeder Hinsicht die goldene bzw. bronzene Mitte : klanglich akzeptable Fülle + Ausgeglichenheit + passable Bespielbarkeit.Und keine Schäden am Instrument mehr zu befürchten. Mit allen Phosphor-Bronze Saiten gemeinsam hat sie den " akustischen" Sound mit anfangs sehr ausgeprägten Brillanzen , die aber nach einigen Tagen auf ein Mittelmaß zurückgehen und da konstant bleiben. Die Verarbeitung ist d'Addario- typisch tadellos, die Haltbarkeit OK.
Auch hinsichtlich meiner Mandola spiele ich derzeit lieber Stahlsaiten, aber von allen getesteten Bronze-Sets (auch anderer Hersteller) war EJ-80 meiner Meinung nach der beste.
