The Gold Tone BSM Medium banjo strings bring a balanced, warm yet bright tone to your 5-string or open back banjo. With the Gold Tone BSM Medium banjo strings, nickel-plated steel construction gives you strings that sing with clarity, resonance and longevity—lasting over 1,000 hours of playing time. The loop-end design fits on any banjo, while the gauges of .011, .024w, .016, .013, .011 provide great playability and balanced tension. Handcrafted in the USA, the Gold Tone BSM Medium banjo strings come packaged in environmentally friendly, corrosion resistant sleeves to keep them fresh. With a medium gage, the Gold Tone BSM banjo strings give you a full, nuanced tone you can rely on.

Sustain Bright Resonance With Nickel-Plated Steel

The steel used in Gold Tone BSM Medium banjo strings is nickel-plated for clarity and resonance you'll hear with every strum or pick. Nickel-plating also protects the steel strings from corrosion and oxidation. This greatly extends string life compared to uncoated strings, giving you over 1,000 hours of playing time before a change is needed. The steel construction rings with the signature banjo twang, while nickel-plating enhances overtones for a balanced, nuanced tone. You'll hear the difference these nickel-plated steel strings make in the BSM's lively, projecting sound.

Loop-End Design Fits All Banjos

Thanks to the universal loop-end design, Gold Tone's BSM Medium banjo strings can be installed on any 5-string or open back banjo, regardless of tailpiece. The loop-end allows easy installation by slipping onto geared tuners and hooking onto notched tailpieces. This versatile string design means you can rely on the Gold Tone BSM strings to deliver their warm, balanced tone and longevity on whichever banjo you play. Keep your banjo sounding its best with a quick change to Gold Tone's BSM Medium strings.
