I have always used D'Addario light strings but decided to give these a try. I have had them on there for a few days and they are only OK in my opinion. The Gibson strings were definitely more money (about 50% more). They do tune up nice and seem to stay in tune so far but the volume is not there compared to the D'Addario strings and they don't seem as full either. Although the gauge is supposed to be the same they seem lighter. I did buy 3 sets of both the Gibson light and Gibson medium strings for comparison and to see how they hold up so I might decide I need a heavier gauge or that my initial impression was wrong. If I had to give an opinion now I would say save your money but stay tuned.

I cut them off my banjo. I was not impressed with the sound on my goodtime 2 banjo. The strings didn't resonate like I expected, I have learned that light strings work best for my banjo.

Amazing sound on my mastertone banjo with these light string. However, I do like the mediums when I'm out an about in festival jams for the extra volume and low end.

Recommend highly. Thought these were a good value and were delivered quickly. Might try extra lights next time to quiet down the old five string
