Where Purchased: River City Music, Washington, MO
A "special order" for me here in Washington, MO but got the strings within a week. I'm not real impressed but I do like the fact that on a fretted banjo I don't have an unwinding as with the wound fourth I have used in the past. I haven't put a set on my fretless(s) yet. The tone and volume are good and seem balanced with the other strings but I have been having quite a time getting the whole set to "settle down". I suspect it is because of the crazy weather. I am going to order two more sets for the fretless "collection" and will know more in the next couple of weeks. I can't find fault with the set but I'm just moderately impressed. Looks sexy, through.
