• Sort of depends on the scale length & the sound you are after.

    I was not happy with the tinny, banjo sound of this 24 inch scale CBG even when tuned EBE.  So, I switched to heavier strings, .056", .044". & .032".  Big improvement.  Sounds great in E tuning (which I much prefer).


  •  E A D strings is the standard, but there’s more you can do with that tuning? Check out this article about EBE tuning from our sister site:
