OVERVIEW

Fight the gunk!

Prolong your tone with the same premium banjo strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available.

Unlike other string brands, Elixir Strings coats the whole string. This protects not only the outer string surface but also the gaps between the windings where common tone-deadening gunk typically builds up in other brands’ coated and uncoated banjo strings.

Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes?

Engineered to endure, these nickel-plated steel banjo strings boast a rich, golden tone while their original POLYWEB Coating provides a slick, fast feel.

FEATURES
  • Gauges 09-10-13-20-09
    Banjo 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.
