"When you're on the road as much as we are, the last thing you want to think about is whether you've packed enough strings to last you. As a band, we play four instruments - banjo, cello, guitar and mandolin, and often travel overseas and internationally. So when we buy strings, we buy strings that last, feel good and sound great and Dean Markley is an obvious choice to ensure that."

String of Choice:
Banjo Medium Strings, Mandolin, Vintage Bronze Acoustic
They wear white shirts and black suspenders, black pants and travellers’ hats. They sing about murderous, estranged spouses and runaway lover cousins in a boot-stomping acoustic configuration that includes banjo, mandolin, cello and guitar, some whistles, hoots and hollerin’, and finger snappin’. Sometimes their fans dress up like them too and dance and sing the night away – but that’s not mandatory. The Dead South consist of Nate Hilts (vocals, guitar), Scott Pringle (mandolin, vocals), Colton Crawford (banjo), and Danny Kenyon (cello).
