The banjo has long been a favorite instrument in the world of popular music. Initially it may call to mind country and bluegrass music, but you may be surprised to learn that artists from The Pogues to the E Street Band have crafted memorable melodies on these distinct instruments. Of course, a banjo only sounds as good as its strings, and with a wide variety available to you, you're sure to find a perfect sound for your next jam or practice session. You would think that choosing a set of strings would be a simple process, but you wouldn't be entirely correct. There are a few factors to look into when you're picking out your strings. First, you're going to make sure you have the correct number of strings. A pack of four strings won't do a lot of good for your five string banjo, so make sure the package you choose is going to meet your needs. Next, you'll want to think about the gauge of the strings. If you like a stiffer feel to your strings, try the Elixir Medium Polyweb Banjo Strings. Or, if you prefer a lighter tone, you might prefer the D'Addario JS60 Stainless Steel Light Banjo Strings. Maybe you prefer something in between the two? Try the "Almost Medium" stainless steel strings from GHS. There are so many variations that it's best to try a few different gauges to understand which work best for you. Maybe you're more interested in the sounds of a specific artist. If that's the case you will almost certainly be interested in the Earl Scruggs strings from Gibson. Scruggs name is practically synonymous with the banjo and these strings are crafted with the excellent note definition that is signature to his style. In the end, your choice of banjo strings will come down to which ones feel best in your hands. You'll know when you start playing and everything clicks. From Dueling Banjos to Dirty Old Town, your banjo will sound great in no time with a new set of strings.
