Best strings for LN...opinion

From TonyS on 5/25/2022 6:19:28 PM

Hey all! Checking out that just site with a gazillion strings... which strings would you folks recommend for the LN? I know folks have faves, but is there a "best" ?? Another opinion question, sorry. ??  I think Pete said something about when they rust? Down to earth guy  lol

I know others like a heavier gauge string, but I'm partial to D'Addario Lights, EJ60.

I generally use GHS PF 180. Anything less i find too light and doesn't bring out the sound as much.

Like John, I use D'Addario Lights, EJS60. I've tried heavier strings but I like the lights. I also use the same strings on my regular scale banjo.
