We offer two types of string choices for your banjo. Standard phosphor-bronze wound steel stings produce a clear and very recognizable banjo tone. For a markedly softer tone, try Nylgut strings. Nylgut strings are made in Italy, and closely mimic the sound of authentic gut strings. Imagine “classical guitar meets banjo.” They will stretch, stretch, stretch when first installed, but it will be well worth the wait.
Installation of Nylgut strings requires wider string slots in the nut, pip and bridge, so some modifications would be required to swap between string types at a future point.
