Thread Name: Banjo string advice
Subject: RE: Banjo string advice
Hi Ray. Thanks for alerting me to this. Been very busy lately and it's cutting into my Mudcat time. I haven't had a nylon strung banjo for a few years, but I remember Paul Cadwell's tip about fishing line....It worked. I don't remember the guages (Paul strung his by the pounds it took to catch certain fish!!) but I used the thinnest line for the first and fifth, went a bit heavier for the second...bit heavier still for the third, and a silk and steel "A" for the fourth. Sounded good. Problem is you have enough left over to fish for eternity!

Hope all is well Ray
