OVERVIEW

Fight the gunk!

Gauges 09-10-13-20-09.

Elixirs are the first major innovation in strings in over forty years, and they deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.

Elixir Banjo Strings are covered with an ultrathin, space-age polymer tube that contacts the string on the tops of the windings only. This leaves the all-important winding-to-winding-to-core space free from the fear of the enemies of tone!

Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary strings.

FEATURES
  • Gauges 09-10-13-20-09Banjo strings constructed with nickel-plated steel wrap wire
  • Played for their rich, golden tone
  • Original POLYWEB Coating provides a slick, fast feel that keeps the strings from getting in the way of playing
  • Patented coating technology protects against common corrosion, extending tone life longer than any other brand’s coated or uncoated strings (Elixir Strings player survey)
  • Coating also reduces finger squeak

I've been a loyal customer to Elixer for 6 years now. Never would've thought that they made a set for Banjos. These stings are absolutly phenominal. To be honest, the Banjo was not even mine to begin with, I just decided to do the owner a favor and change his strings for him. So I hope he'll like these.

It's my first time stringing up the banjo so maybe I did something wrong so I may not be the best judge. It sounds very different . I did it right though I measured from the nut to the twelfth fret and doubled it to place my bridge and kept everything else the same.
