I am intrested in perriod accessories. For instance:
What did the minstrel Era Banjoist (term?) use
to protect and carry his banjo? did they have cases as we know them?
did the instruments with wooden friction pegs have any sort of
fine tuner like the fiddle players use? Did they have any type
of compound for the pegs to help sticking or slipping?
Enough questions for now. I'd like to assemble a historiclly
correct Banjo "kit"
Thanks for any answers you'd care to share
I've reverted to using a tuning fork, although I do have one of the clip ons. I clip it on to the drum when I use it, and immediately hide it when done.
