my scale length

Friday, November 16, 2012

I just read a post on here about A - scale banjos. I don't know if mine qualifies as an A scale

or even a short scale, but I just have to tell you that my "Sonotube banjo has a 25"  scale and it

fits my hands great and I really like it. I keep it tuned D O W N to  dADF#A and it is really nice.

I strung it up with my old standby monofilament fishing line . !st string=30lb , 2nd string=30lb

3rd string= 50lb , 4thstring= 80lb ,  5thstring=30lb. the strings aren't floppy.  I love a low tuned banjo.
