Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Just signed on for minstrel lessons with Bill Evans here in the Bay Area of California.

Using my brand new Bell Boucher (from the kit, added planetary).

Should be fun!

By planetary, I mean 4:1 planetary pegs seen here:

I just saw Bill down at Suwannee Banjo Camp. He's a fine musician! Enjoy your lessons!

Bill is a very patient teacher and all around nice guy. I wish I had more time to study with him. 

Thanks for posting that site.  Those are interesting machines!  Paul

Geared 4:1 pegs cost only $20.00 each, you have choice of composite or ebony finger grips.  I chose ebony.
