Questions & Answers

Phosphor Bronze strings have an advantage over standard stainless steel strings. What makes them superior?

There is to some extent a certain brightness in tone to the bronze wound 4th compared to nickel wound 4th. Stainless steel wound fourth strings have never been tried by me. There are most frequently 5 string banjo sets that include stainless steel for the other 4 strings, including the GHS PF 160. Although I use GHS PF160's for their specific gauges (not because of phospher bronze 4th wound), therefore these gauges are specific to this gun. Since PF 160 is a medium/heavy string, it goes well with my lower pitch banjo tunings. PF 150 String Set from GHS is also lighter than PF 150 string set However, medium gauge is still used. In addition, it is also strung with bronze. This question was answered on October 26, 2017 by HSM

What's the difference between a light and a medium picture?

It is a light 1st string with a gauge or thickness of 1st string of a 10 would be a The strings of the medium string set are larger and a bit more difficult.

Will this fit a long neck Vega ?

usually trim around 12 inches from my haircuts, but I have no idea what the exact measurement is There are 15 years left

These seem like balls to me This is the end of the Where does this leave us? Balls are seen in some of the photos This concludes our discussion. ?

It appears that the strings I received were loop ends.

Those are so cute! There is a 5 string Deering Goodtime Banjo in my possession
5/5

The strings I have used so far were either Deering's or the ones Guitar Center offered The product is in a small box, with a blue wrapper. I cannot recall the name of the company that produces them. Despite owning the instrument for almost two years, I have never really faced a sound issue, I am not an especially prolific player and I seem to be learning as I go along. Nevertheless, at the moment, I am in love with them and have fallen in love with these as soon as I have set them up. This is truly a wonderful set of strings and I am even more eager than ever to practice and have a go at It will take some time before I know whether the strings will last, so I will try to report back as soon as I can. You might have better luck if you try out different strings.

However, the strings are great
4/5

The strings are great, but I wish GHS offered one nickel wound fourth string in the pack with the same series of string gauges. My banjo is custom made and has a JLS-type pickup It has a black suede head and a graphite neck and a 12-tone ring. It is a bit muddled on this banjo on the phosphor bronze 4th string. With a nickel wound 4th string in place of this string, the sound is much clearer.

This is a million times better than any other product you could possibly buy and it lasts far longer too
5/5

There is no end to these. It's not uncommon for me to tune my banjo to different keys constantly, and the strings you buy at Guitar Center are poor quality. They work a million times better, sound a million times better, and last a million times longer than anything else. Since I bought these a year ago I am just writing this review because I realized I am absolutely in love with Purchase made with confidence. There is only one thing I regret I can't play the banjo very well.

Spend your time elsewhere, these cheap and broken are not worth it! The banjo is my instrument, but I am not a professional, so I thought it would be good to save a few bucks I almost lost my mind trying to put them on and keep them on because they are cheap and break easily! It's definitely worth the extra money to buy these because you definitely get what you pay for

I don't like the sound of the fourth and fifth strings
3/5

Buy the heavier gauge PF150 instead of the lighter gauge. I tried to play the 5th and the 4th string, but they sounded awful. There is a chart that shows which string goes with which, but I did not realize that they are not just for the Banjo but also for Mandolin, so I found it As I normally purchase Chinese strings from Singapore, I was anxious to see if the American strings were any good. This wasn't the case. I will, however, order a slightly heavier gauge and write another review after I use it.

This is nice
5/5

I love my banjo with these mediums. It is especially beautiful and warm when played on the D string. As a second preference, I would like a medium-light setting.

An audio file that sounds clear and smooth
5/5

These strings are so beautiful to me. It feels really smooth and doesn't have much grit in it. I switched to this brand just a few days ago. The sound is beautiful and warm. I'll likely be loyal to the brand for the rest of my life.

The sound is beautiful
5/5

There is a mellow tone to the banjo thanks to the bronze. I don't like bluegrass twangy music.
