I have returned to This site , I'm glad to be here. Now
that personal Issues are resolved and I have Time to
learn and enjoy this instrument. I would like to explain
my banjo , It was built with the"use what ya got" approach.
I didn't have much money or special shop at my disposal
so I just kinda went for it. The Pot is made from a piece
of that aqua bluesewer pipe that ya often see at
construction sites. The neck and dowel are from Lowes.
The neck is Poplar. The head is calfskin
the friction pegs are from stew mac (grover's). The strings
are fishing line monofilament. When folks ask me what
brand of strings I use I like to watch their face as I tell them
"Trilene" ! The tensioning device is a boot lace !
I tune her to eBEG#B
