"I do not like the tension or tone of Savarez carbon strings, and I find that they do not intonate well. Seaguar Premier carbon fishing line is far less expensive and intonates perfectly. It sounds and feels the same as the Savarez carbon, so I…"

"No, you have to order them from their site. Pyramid strings also offers singles in the correct gauges. They are based in Germany."

"John, Yep all down to how we set up, how we pick and what we prefer. I tried an 11" Remo Fibreskin and had the same problems you describe. It was "hard" to play and felt and sounded dreadful. I use a lot of heavy and medium gauge…"

"No, you want the fingerboard sitting even with the pot. It sounds like you may have a neck angle issue (modern banjos have back angle to allow for taller bridges). Also, keep in mind that it takes some practice to fret the strings with action as…"

"Some of us like the tin can sound. Look up videos of Tarrant Bailey Jr. on YouTube to see why. :) Contrary to what you might have read, a Renaissance head will make your banjo even thinner and brighter sounding when using nylon. I find a frosted top…"
