Is there a place to source chromium wrapped stainless steel strings? I am looking for following gauges for a low octave open G 5 string.

g 0.26, D 0.56, G 0.40, B 0.30, D 0.26

Thomastik makes your strings. There are many USA dealers but if you need to ask directly, Thomastik will have you contact Connolly, their USA distributor.

I use the D'Addario flat-wound ECG25 XL Chrome strings, but use the lights. It looks like you will need to use the medium strings or buy single strings to get the sizes you want. Just Strings has them, and you can buy single strings.  You will need to remove the ball from the end to get a loop if your banjo won't take ball ends.
