These are fine at regular pitch
I've been playing a similar set since the 1960s except that the 4th was a .026". Back then they were called Vega Mediums (and they're still lighter than acoustic guitar sets).

They will not "snap your banjo" or any such nonsense. For those wanting a vintage sound from a vintage banjo, these are great way to get it.

John Pearse 5 string banjo nickel D's
A great inexensive string with lots of punch. These strings are well balanced and give the instrument a very 'plunky' buoyant tone that carries across the stage very well. Be careful, though, these are heavier strings for dropped tunings on the banjo, so don't go cranking them up to 'G' tuning; you may snap your banjo!
