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 our original POLYWEB Coating provides a slick, fast feel. Elixir Strings: Great tone. Long life.
