    Still throwing the flag for the penalty. 8s in banjo strings are still rarish today. Although I think I have heard of 8s in banjo strings, a quick look at GC and Sweetwater could not locate any. Back in the 60s I remember nothing for banjos lighter than 10s and those were considered spider webs.

    Listened to the Beano album (eh, CD) today driving into work, what great tone Clapton had on that album.

    You can't get a more direct source than that.

    I'm surprised no-ones doing reproduction sets so we can try it out...[a combo of electric and banjo strings]. I doubt it'd be better than what we have now, but variety is OK in my book.

    They have for years, they're just called Xtra Lights. The other thing about doing what Page (and Clapton and others) were doing at the time was, you got a plain G string that way; back then all guitar sets came with a wound third, like acoustic sets still do.

    I love the Beano Tone. I didn't read the whole thread, so my bad if it's been said. Clapton was said to also have used a Dallas Rangemaster boost pedal on the album. Here's a cool story. Eric Clapton has a house in Columbus, Ohio. I live in Delaware, Oh. He's been sited in various restaurants and a bluesier club about 6 miles from my apt.:slash:

    Maybe I'll run in to him one day.

    Yes you're flogging a dead horse here.......it's an old wives tale that EC used a Rangemaster.....it's fictional with no facts to verify whatsoever.
    If you do.....get a selfie:cool:

    like the Rangemaster myth I reckon he didnt even use a Burst on that album at all but instead used his LP Custom :laugh2::laugh2:
