Tom, could you post the banjo strings sizes, from 1st thru 5th, that you use on a typical fretless? Thanks
That's about the scale of my Moschella. I am using the standard set of Aquilla minstrel nylgut now. I haven't bought any in a while. I may give these a try. Thanks, Tom
mmmm, honestly as finicky as the gut strings are I cannot put my rig with the guts down. Last time i played the nylguts I was taken aback at how harsh they sound. They have also been beat mercilessly for a few years now so they might just be needing to be replaced. But the guts have this warmth to them that is just not present with the nylguts.
When I was fussing with all the bass string replacements I had a fluorocarbon string that was second best to the gut bass. Is this similar to fluorocarbon?
