      Mike or others:
      In the lesson on changing strings Mike recommends the SKU brand PF145 string set. What would be the recommended string gauges (product) for low tuning (E B E G# B) a standard neck length banjo, aka John Hartford tuning?

      Similar question regarding recommended string sets for a long neck banjo?

      Thanks, everyone. – Bob

      You might have to experiment a bit but my first guess would be you’d want slightly heavy gauge strings with the longer neck.

      I bet that thing sounds awesome tuned down to E!
