Luke The Makings of a Great Banjo (58* d) RE: The Makings of a Great Banjo 01 Dec 00


Bonnie,

I don't know the model but it's maple with a moon on the headstock. It's a large pot maple also. Nothin fancy otherwize. fiberskin head hmmm I think it's your basic banjo. It has a very warm tone and works great for all kinds of tunes. Great for playing with just a fiddler or accompanying songs. Love the way it slurs notes together when I slide around on it. Many warm harmonics . It sounds like you are getting a great one. I wish you lots of great hours of discovery and friendship with your new musical pal. be careful though, they say "if you keep pickin' it, it will never heal". Thats been the case with me.

Luke
