GHS Strings has launched a new range of Pure Nickel Mandolin strings.

The strings are designed to deliver a warm, rich, vintage sound with a superior, long lasting tone. The strings custom gauges were chosen because the firm believes they are right for players looking for authentic tone on vintage mandolins, or wanting more richness and depth of tone from new mandolins. The strings are available in two gauge sets, from 010 1/2-039 to 011-041.
 
Pure Nickel strings were commonly available in the 1950’s and 60’s. Their popularity waned when the increasing cost of nickel and number of rock players encouraged string manufacturers to explore different metal mixes.
