I’m new to this instrument and having problems finding strings. The gold tone strings seem fragile and short.
I saw the archived thread. I was hoping there is some update with specific advice on strings that are easily available that work well. Classic guitar strings? Any flatwound that work?
Thanks for any help.

I just did a blueprint for a cello banjo for a friend who was building a batch of 5 and needed the full size drawings.  The pdf is available in the topic link below and has string recommendations in the upper left hand corner of the print.

I finally caught up with this.
Thanks for the help, advice.
Hope I can find those strings. Maybe I can get to Elderly. Very limited suppliers
In the rural “north” and shipping is pricey
