Can anyone tell me if it would be a good idea to put some D'Addario EJ87C Titanium Srings on my Banjolele and if it would sound any good?

Thanks for looking

It's completely subjective, really.

However, the titanium nylon strings I find have a slightly brighter/tighter tone than regular nylon strings. The actual tension is a bit higher than nylon (but not much), and the feel under your fingers is fairly comparable to standard nylon.

So, depending on the tone of your banjolele, it will probably brighten up the sound a bit than what you currently have. You're the only one that can say for sure if it was a good idea, and if it sounds any good.
