Thread Name: Banjo: Does string size make a difference?
Subject: Tech: Does string size make a difference?
I recently made another foolish instrument purchase. I bought a six-string banjo while in Whitby. One of the problems with it is that regular guitar strings for the E, A, and D strings sound too clunky. I would like to use smaller gauge strings. Can I do that and still tune them to the standard guitar tunings?
