   I usually keep in stock a small quantity of the strings sets shown below. For more than 2 sets, I may need to order more, from the supplier, but the delay is usually only about a week.
Classical Strings

These are GHS ultra-light classical strings, specially designed for older, short-scale bowlbacks and suitable for more fragile instruments, and not available from most online suppliers.

Gauges are 09, 13, 20w, and 32w.

(I can also supply GHS light sets)

Pyramid Mandriola strings

GHS Mandola Strings

These are GHS light mandola strings in bright bronze, loop end, suitable for older, more fragile instruments, and not available from most online suppliers. They produce a nice warm sound and last well.

GHS Irish Bouzouki Strings

These are GHS octave mandolin strings, (the American term for the Irish bouzouki), in phosphor bronze, loop end, and not available from most online suppliers.

For other instruments, I can make up strings sets to order, particularly for waldzithers converted to Irish bouzoukis, for which there will be NO commercial set available. As a general rule for dedicated sets, count 2 per string or 3 per string if they need to be double loop. For double loop strings, I also make a simple loop-winder which will allow you to wind your own.
