These light strings are so much easier to play thant the 12's for me. I'm not a heavy strummer, and these strings really bring the melody line forward.
These strings sound great on my mandolin!
Excellent tone and feel. I got into a deal where I had to play an evening show outside at about 55 degrees. I tuned with a strobe tuner. I figured I'd never stay in tune but it did. The next day the same thing happened. I checked with the strobe to find still in tune. Three days later I did a gig and was again in tune. I've never had strings respond this way in 40+ years of playing.
