Reply To: What gauge strings?


Mine’s fretless as well. It’s my first fretless instrument. I’m finding that the transition has been fairly smooth, but for certain songs with more chording (typical of the more modern songs I learn), I still prefer frets. Fretless sure is a really fun way to play, though, especially on the older tunes. The gourd kit was a lot of fun to put together, so I’m saving up now for the classic minstrel kit. Overall, I’d have to say that I couldn’t be much happier with the gourd banjo.
