Acquired a cheap Chicago banjo with bakelite resonator and when attempting to restring it learned loop end strings will not work. Must either buy a new tailpiece or find ball end strings of the sort used on guitars. Don't recall seeing banjo strings with metal balls on the end at local music shops in years. Anyone know where I can buy a set?3 comments
