    Default DR Dragonskin Strings...oof.

    I've been making my rounds on different strings to find the ones I like and will stick with for a bit, but gosh...have you ever put on strings and immediately thought, "Yeah, I'm never using these again."?

    I put on DR Dragonskin strings the other day and they feel like a complete afterthought for mandolin. The package says 6 strings in some places (you do get the 8), packaging talks about 3 envelopes (when you get 4), and the A and E strings are the length of guitar strings. They sound...fine, but I was a bit surprised that they would care that little about the details.

    I have used DR Rare strings on my mandolin. The package says "acoustic guitar" but they really are an 8 string set with loop ends, appropriate length for a standard scale mando.

    They're good strings, sound good and last. They were my favorites until I discovered Curt Mangan.

    Glad to hear they resonate with some. I had to remove them after a week. The A kept going out of tune. Now my tuning issues are all gone.
