Strings for octave mandolin
I recently bought a Trinity College octave mandolin and I am still experimenting with string types and gauges. I want a good quality light-medium gauge string and I was wondering if anyone could recommend what to buy. Are the gauges the same for bouzouki and octave mandolin? I don’t want to risk messing with the neck/tension of my instrument. Right now I have standard D’Addario strings with gauges .042, .032, .020, .014. I guess this would be about medium-heavy? Please advise.
