Subject: RE: how far can you tune strings on a banjo?
Welcome to hell!
Why would you need to tune a banjo up very high? Just use a capo.
I use quite a few standard & non standard tunings (double C, Triple C, E Modal, G Modal,aDGAD etc) none of these seem to do any harm. I also tune the banjo down to F# or F.
But I can't see any reason for just tuning it to a higher key.
Open to suggestions though.
