GHS Americana Banjo StringsBattle Creek, MI -- New for 2015, GHS has launched the Americana Series Banjo strings, perfect for all styles of American root music; country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B, and blues.

The strings have been developed by drawing on GHS’s decades of knowledge in string design and construction, innovative materials selection and input from their artist family to define preferred gauge sizes. Add in cryogenic treatment to extend string life and tone, plus GHS’ exclusive NitroPack packaging with the company’s unique ‘Anti-Corrosion Guarantee’ and the resulting Americana Series Banjo strings will excite players as much as this genre of music does.

Ned Luberecki the popular banjo professional, known for his dazzling technique and originality, who plays with Chris Jones & the Night Drivers recently commented, ‘The Americana series have the same tone and feel that I’ve come to rely on from GHS Strings, but stay in tune better than any strings I’ve ever tried. They’re incredible! Without a doubt, the best strings I’ve ever used!’

Americana Series Banjo – made with cryogenically treated stainless steel are available in either light or medium gauges. These reinforced wound, round strings have exceptional volume, a sparkly bright tone and huge percussive attack. The strings have a loop end and are extra long to fit most banjos. The slightly lighter first & fifth string make these a must for sensitive banjo players.

Also available in the Americana Series are strings for mandolin, acoustic guitar, pedal steel and resonator guitar. To find out how deep GHS’s roots run please go to
