Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Has anyone used Horsehair or Hemp for strings? The following link is a gourd banjo with Horsehair strings playing the tune “Old Johnny Boker.” I think it sounds great. https://youtu.be/RW9KGlw7n3A

It does sound good and slightly different than nylgut strings.

So how do you make them?
