To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have used the Elixir guitar strings for over 4 years now and though time to try on my banjo. I don't play banjo too often therefore the strings don't get changed that frequently. I have played a little after fitting these strings and seem just right. Good, clear tone and, hopefully, the longevity as shown by the guitar strings.
I have a only changed my strings a few times on my banjo as I have not had it too long and they seemed fine, holding their tune well. These strings were the first ones where I really noticed a big difference when I swapped the strings. They seemed to have a much fuller tone to them (exactly same string sizes as previous sets). Hopefully they will last well as that is a big selling point of the Elixir. Assuming that they do, I will be buying these again.
