8-string octave mandolin sets (custom)
If my standard sets don't match your preferred gauges, feel free to make up your own set! Name your preferences below and I'll send exactly what you want. (If you're looking for a gauge I don't have listed, I can probably get it for you. I also sell sets for standard 5-string mandolins, 5-string baritone mandolins, 8-string mandolins, and mandocellos.)

Strings up to .016" are plain steel; heavier strings are roundwound with either nickel steel or phosphor bronze. Sets are available with either loop-end or ball-end strings. You will automatically get ball-end strings unless you specify loop-end. Select "Octave pairs" if you'd like to tune your G and D courses in octaves.
