Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

My Finished Bell and Son Boucher

After a longer-than-expected delay, I have finally added the pegs, bridge and strings...I am EXTREMELY pleased with the end result!

Thanks, Tim. And with the help of your book and CD, I'm learning more about Minstrel style. Having an instrument that's set up for it makes it much easier.

Terry, thanks! I had some good advise from some guy in MI. ;-}  And Nicholas, give me a little time to build up some skills in minstrel stroke style. I promise I will, but I want to do the instrument justice.
