The best, love 'em!
I love these strings. I put them on a junky openback banjo and it just sounds wonderful now. Great for folk and old time music, or anything you want a softer vibe on. They stretch like crazy, it took a couple of weeks for them to settle in, especially the 3rd and 4th strings, but they are just beautiful. I just ordered more to put on my other (not junky) banjo -- I don't think I'll ever go back to steel. Just beware of breakage issues if you have any sharp bits on your banjo, they cut easily.
