Aquila Nylgut Banjo String Set

Aquila Nylgut Banjo String Set

$ 11.99

Until the mid-20th century Banjos were mounted exclusively in gut, a material that had been used for thousand of years and that combines excellent promptness of attack with brilliance of timbre – very different, in other words, from modern nylon strings. And until recently the typical sound quality of gut has been a constant point of reference for lute-makers, composers and performers alike. These are minstrel banjo strings designed for Briggs dGDF#A tuning only at a medium tension.
