D'Addario is one of the original players in the instrument strings game, with more than 330 years under its belt making amazing strings for a variety of instruments. From humble beginnings in a small Italian town called Salle, D'Addario made its way to New York City and went on to become one of the biggest string makers around. Naturally, the catalog of such an influential manufacturer wouldn't be complete without an impressive selection of banjo strings. Your choice of D'Addario banjo strings is going to depend partly on what type of banjo you play. For example, if you're a tenor picker, the J63 Tenor Banjo Strings are likely the right choice for you. This set of four strings comes in nickel-plated steel for the best possible sound, feel and durability. If Irish jigs are your specialty, you'll also want to check out the D'Addario J63i 4-String Irish Banjo Strings. With the tenor banjo's explosion of popularity in Irish folk music since the 1960s, more and more musicians are jumping on board with strings like these and the banjos to match.
If the 5-string banjo is your instrument, there are tons of D'Addario strings for you to choose from. Try the J55 Phosphor Bronze Medium Banjo Strings, for instance, if you're looking for a rich and warm acoustic tone. This set is mostly steel but has a fourth string wound in phosphor bronze to add that extra touch to the sound. For a more clean and precise tone, you could also try the JS57 or JS60 Stainless Steel Banjo Strings, which can produce some brilliant sound and are sure to last for a long time.
Whichever of these banjo strings you decide on for your next set, you can take confidence in choosing D'Addario. Their centuries of string-making experience speak for themselves, but even if they didn't, you would definitely find that they've got the sound quality and playability to back up their reputation.
