“Plectrum Banjo” capo and string question.
I just picked up a nice old John Grey plectrum banjo (22 fret) but it’s a bit of a stretch to play tunes in GDAE. I’ve thought for quite a while I’d like to have a go at tenor banjo, then I found this for $50. Can’t complain about the price!
If I put a capo up around the 19th or 17th fret , what gauge strings will allow me to tune to GDAE with acceptable tension and without distortion. I play mandolin so I’d prefer to keep that tuning. Can anyone help?
