OVERVIEW

Brilliant sound and excellent longevity.

Gauges 10-12-16-23-10.

The name Vega has been synonymous with fine quality-crafted banjos since 1889. Their combined experience in instrument making, string winding, and comprehensive sound testing make Vega strings the best choice for your banjo. All raw materials are of premium quality to assure brilliance, clarity, and longevity. We have selected a nickel/steel alloy for its tonal qualities which are best suited to accent the strong resonating tendencies of most banjos.

In addition, Vega strings are highly resistant to corrosion. The smooth consistency of the wrap wires makes them ideal for all styles of banjo playing, whether it be the short, snappy plectrum style; the quick, flowing Scruggs style; or the rhythm driving frailing technique.


Your strings are the origin of your sound. Commit to quality. Order now.

      Comments about Martin V730 Medium Vega Banjo Strings:

      I've tried almost every string out there.
      They are almost all worthy; but for
      Tone, longevity, Pop, I always wind up back
      with the Vega medium gauge.
      Gauge is a personal choice, this is mine,
      guage the strings for your playing style and
      your banjo. Mine sounds like an arch ring
      with 10-20s, sounds like pre-war with 10-23
      The inside mix on the Vega mediums gives
      My axe the sound and drive I like.

      Vega Medium Number 1

      Comments about Martin V730 Medium Vega Banjo Strings:

      I have tried all the strings onthe market and these are hands down the best value, performance and sound in my humble opinion. I tune them up full speed and let 'er rip. They last fairly well, not brain-surgery just banjo-pickin'. Try them you'll like them.........Doc

      I'm impressed

      Comments about Martin V730 Medium Vega Banjo Strings:

      I just put the Martin Vega medium gauge strings on my banjo, and I am impressed with the results. Here are the details. A larger-diameter ("fatter") string gives a fatter sound. In my opinion, detuning a stringed instrument increases the resonance of the sound. Previously, I used low-tension strings at full pitch. For the ideal tone:I installed these, detuned one fret, and I am really impressed with the result. It gave me both the tone and resonance I was desiring. I would try this technique also for a bluegrass banjo, if you want a warmer sound. Also, you can try tuning up to full pitch, but I am always cautious of using thick strings at full pitch. I am ordering more right now!
