Thread Name: Banjo string advice
Subject: RE: Banjo string advice
I've got a frettless banjo strung with nylon guitar strings, and the 4ht has wound bronze on nylon. The strings are a heavey gauge, but any lighter and they would be flopping around when I play. So I keep it tuned about a 5th lower than a regular banjo, because the tension is way too high at normal pitch.
