For enthusiasts of early banjo

William Mount painting "The Banjo Player" -- Is the banjo a Boucher?

I have a repro of that banjo, and I'd always heard that it was believe to have been made by Boucher? Your thoughts?

Dear Noah,

Take a look at Ed Britt's comments on this Banjo Hangout thread.

Best regards,


Thanks Greg. So I guess the true identity of that banjo is a Boucher, but we may never know. I'd always questioned the shape of the peg head whether it was made by Boucher, since it's similar to the beehive s-shaped peghead.
