Full description


The new Vintage Light set honors the heritage of the "Bell Brand Strings", widely acknowledged as the strings to use around the 1950’s. Used in countless classic recordings, these string gauges are an indispensable industry standard.

Banjo virtuoso and Deering artist, Jens Kruger comments, “For an authentic bluegrass sound, the Vintage Light Set will provide the true feel and tone of the good old days. Clean attack, plenty of volume, distinct note separation, as well as excellent properties for sliding and bending.”

These strings are specially formulated to bring out a crisp, clear sound from each Deering Banjo. You will find that these strings bring out a unique tonal quality, responsiveness and ease of playing on all banjos as well.

These are high specification strings that are made for Deering Banjos by the USA Dunlop string company.
