Martin BLUEGRASS Banjo strings
What happened to these? The Vega strings are inferior to the ones in the red, white, and blue box. You still have that brand for Dobro - thanks. Please bring 'em back for 5-string banjo!

Great for open -back banjos
I actually like this string a lot for open-backs. It gives a warmer but clear sound, even on Fiberskyn heads. Great for plunky, old-time banjo tone

Martin Vega Banjo String .010-.023
I got these as a backup set. What was on my Harmony(it's cheap, but sounds good) were Martins "Bluegrass" strings(the ones with the American flag on the cover). Those are SO MUCH BRIGHTER than the Vega's! I haven't played any other strings but the Vegas have a Warmer tone; not so bright on my Harmony. So if your looking for a warmer tone string check out the Vegas. If your looking for something brighter(like me), try the "Bluegrass" strings.

"The name Vega has been synonymous with fine quality-crafted banjos since 1889. Our combined experience in instrument making, string winding, and comprehensive sound testing make Vega Strings the best choice for your banjo. All raw materials are of premium quality to assure brilliance, clarity, and longevity. We have selected a nickel/steel alloy for its tonal qualities which are best suited to accent the strong resonating tendencies of most banjos. In addition, Vega strings are highly resistant to corrosion. The smooth consistency of the wrap wires makes them ideal for all styles of banjo playing, whether it be the short, snappy plectrum style; the quick, flowing Scruggs style; or the rhythm driving frailing technique."
