Thread Name: String gauge question
Subject: RE: String gauge question
I reckon that your scale length might be a problem though, so I guess that you might need to be a shade lighter, especially on the higher strings. I would check out extra light mandolin string gauges, with some extra customs for the As and Cs. And surely the G ought to be about .042, if it’s only a tone lower than the neighbouring A?
