    Comments about Ernie Ball 2061 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze 5-String Banjo Frailing Strings:

    I love these strings on my Deering Goodtime banjo. I play in multiple tunnings all the time and If these string can last this long they get an A+ for me. When I first got the strings I did break one when putting them up there. That put a bad taste in my mouth as far as quality. But as I had bought a big pack of them I decided to just get another out and try it again. I blame that break on myself. These strings are a year old, and I play everyday.

        Great sound but very hard on your fretting fingers. If you don't have calusses on your fingertips, you will after playing with these strings.

          I have been using Ernie Ball Phos. strings on my banjolas and banjos for quite some time. Not as loud as straight steel but the tone more than makes up for it. Musicians Friend prices, quick shipping and outstanding followup, if you need it keep bringing me back, thanks!
