That has a really nice sound to it.  Thanks for posting the video so we could hear it.

Isn't that a sweet sounding banjo? Seems to echo almost. Was originally found in an estate sale in New York State, so speculating it was made by a New York maker.

man that is cool, pretty awesome to bring back to life and give it a second chance :)

Nice sounding banjo!  There is something really special about finding an old banjo and restoring it to playable condition so it can sing again.  I was fortunate to find an 1888 Stuart that I was able to do just that. Have fun with yours.

Dave--love the old Stewarts! Have several of those, plus an Acme, by Stewart. Never met a Stewart banjo I didn't like!
