Got this set for the 'Harley Benton HBMA-50' mandolin because the ones it came with were too rough and coarse.
This D'Addario set was fair enough and the strings were definitely softer and felt much better under my fingers. The sound was surely brighter and louder than the ones I had by design on the mandolin. But for some reason, at this price, I was expecting something much better. In brief, I was not blown away by this set of strings, but I didn't dislike them either. However, I definitely expected something more special for this price.
I will be still looking at more string sets to finally offer me that vintage, deep, and bluegrass tone. Unfortunately, this set, although practically good, does not do that in terms of tone at all.
