It does keep on ringing. What kind of strings?

Hello Janet
it has steel light strings
Also the thick block rim and neck, as well as no knot style tail piece adds to the sustain .
thanks for all your posts!

I don't know this song yet, but it sounds like a nice one to learn. That's interesting that you use steel strings. You do get a nice bass sound with them. Do you ever use nylgut? I'm contemplating using them on the cello banjo, but since the original steel wound strings cost so much, I'm waiting to try.
