Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

One of my favorites from the Briggs banjo instructor of 1855. Trying to break in my new Pete Ross four-string gourd banjo.

Thanks you Sirs.

The sound of this instrument is incredible. This vid doesn't start to capture it. I'm going to make a few more when I get a chance with the camera a little closer so the gourd's full tonal range can be heard.

I went to his web site, saw some really cool stuff.  That's one thing that got me, is it sounds REALLY nice and with a good tone just off of the basic recording. In person and I bet it really sounds great. Do some more with that one when you get a chance.
