Product Reviews for La Bella Banjo for Classical and Minstrel All Nylon, 17

La Bella Banjo for Classical and Minstrel All Nylon, 174Baba RobertsJanuary 22, 2011Recently bought an old friction peg banjo which came with steel strings! Took the strings off immediately before any further damage was done. Since then I have been experimenting with nylon and to be honest the best choice so far was using a medium classical guitar set from Augustine, using the E,B,G and D strings. They gave me great sound, the only problem being the strings were too thick to want to hack into the old (possibly original) bone nut so decided to buy a set of La Belle. I have found them a great compromise. Easy on the hands, great to use , however they are a bit too light, almost slack, and lack sustain for my liking. Took a lot of time to settle in too, with much stretching. But at this price who can argue! Try it out at least!
