      Comments about GHS Phosphor Bronze 5-String Banjo Strings Medium:

      These are the strings that Kevin Enoch recommends for his Tradesman open back banjo. What many people don't realize is that an open back banjo requires a certain string tension to force the neck and pot into the correct angle. If you use a string that is too low in tension, you may have to use a higher bridge which may affect intonation. I discovered this when I put nylon strings on another banjo I own. The GHS PF160 strings make my Enoch banjo perfect. I can use a lower bridge if I want to without any string buzz.
