Martin V700 Vega Light 5-String Banjo Strings are Bluegrass personified.

The name Vega® has been synonymous with fine quality-crafted banjos since 1889.  Martin guitar's combined experience in instrument making, string winding, and comprehensive sound testing make Vega strings the best choice for your banjo. 

Martin selected a long lasting nickel/steel alloy for its tonal qualities and smooth consistency making these strings ideal for all styles of banjo playing, which are best suited to accent the strong resonating tendencies of most banjos.

All raw materials are of premium quality to assure brilliance, clarity, and longevity. In addition, Vega strings are highly resistant to corrosion.

The smooth consistency of the wrap wires makes them ideal for all styles of banjo playing, whether it be the short, snappy plectrum style; the quick, flowing Scruggs style; or the rhythm driving frailing technique.
