Baritone 5-string sets
The baritone 5-string mandolin is increasing in popularity, thanks to players like Michael Kang. I'm happy to fill the small but growing need for baritone strings. These are suitable for GDAEB or FCGDA tuning on a scale length of approximately 19–20 inches. (If you want 5-string or 8-string standard mandolin sets, or a mandocello or octave mandolin sets, I sell those, too.) Here are the details:
