Mandolin strings, like their acoustic instrument cousins, come in different gauges (range of string thicknesses). A light gauge mandolin string is going to cater better to the beginning player and the player who prefers a lighter touch; due to the smaller thickness they are easier to play. Medium and heavy gauge strings are going to be a little more difficult to play but their increased thickness creates a rounder and more abundant sound. It comes down to what size string is easiest for you to play and allows you to get as close as possible to the desired sound you hope to get out of your mandolin.

Fender, Martin, and John Pearse all utilize reliable bronze mandolin strings which ensure string reliability and a consistently good playability of your mandolin. Bronze strings tend to also have a very well balanced sound with treble, middle, and bass all present to maintain that rounded sound.
