I just restrung a commerical mando yesterday with Aquila Nylgut mandolin strings.  You have to search them out a bit, and they are $8/set but they sound really great - way less harsh than metal strings but still very loud and clear.


Being nylon, they take several days if not weeks to fully settle in.  We had them on a uke in the house, and were really pleased how they sounded compared to cheaper nylon strings.  Much clearer and louder.


A good altermative to consider if you have concerns about neck seating under the stress of 8 strings of metal. 


So far I only put on a single set of 4, not paired courses.
