Any advice/recommendations for strings for a tenor? I’m using the Deering/Dunlop strings (.010, .016, .024w, 030w) which came with the banjo (Deering 17-fret open back) and am wondering which strings you all use?
Most of the tenor sets available are very similar. Your best bet is to try various examples until you find the ones best suited to your banjo, your ears, and your fingers. I've found that with some banjos, the sets don't work for me, so I buy individual strings instead.

Thank you to all who replied. Since my original post a few months and with more playing I think I’m beginning to understand how strong gauge and balance affects playing. Some strings sound and play better and more easily than others. But I find I can play well enough at my beginning level on any string.
