Light gauge: 10-14-24-34Cleartone Mandolin strings may have a coating of only one micron, but it's more durable than coatings thousands of times its thickness. It won't flake off with hard playing, nor will it feel slick or slippery to your touch. Super-high tension winding over a hex-core is used to maintain tuning consistency throughout your performance. EMP Treatment is then applied to all the strings to ensure longest tonal life without compromises.What is EMP.Everyone knows that coated strings last longer, and uncoated strings sound better. There is a Tone compromise and up until now, you had to accept compromises.Whanks to Cleartone Strings, you no longer have that compromise. Cleartone Treated Strings feature a protective film called EMP Ã¢ÂÂ Enhanced Molecular Protection. This treatment helps prolong tonal life without sacrificing feel or sound. At one micron thin, it is up to one thousand times thinner than coated strings. In fact, EMP treated strings last as long or longer than other string brands on the market, but feel and sound like an uncoated set. This gives you exactly what you always wanted - killer Tone with an incredible lifespan. Let's face it, changing strings is annoying, but throwing on a virtually dead set to begin with is much worse. Also, unlike coated strings, the EMP treatment works equally with both acoustic and electric strings. EMP bonds to the molecules in the metal so during hard strumming it doesn't feel slippery and never flakes compromises.Whaartone Strings feel and sound like a regular set, but designed to last 3-5 times compromises.Whahing else lasts as long and sounds as good. Cleartone is the next evolution in guitar strings.
