Anybody tried tuning up the plectrum banjo (Standard tuning: DBGC) to E Csharp A D
Apart from the VegaVox. Did it work for you? Light strings? Say .010 / .013 / .017 /.022 as an example. Be interested to hear.

I've been studying Eddy Peabody, so I tune up a whole-step. Light gauge banjo strings work fine for me. I have a 1950s Vega Professional and a 1970s Iida tuned this way.
