Minstrel Banjo medley by Rob Morrison
Favorite of 1 person
I am playing a very early circa 1860's mass-produced banjo, possibly an early Buckbee. The neck, pot, and all the hardware are original. It has a 23 inch scale length and is a joy to play.
Rob, you have a great collection of original minstrel era banjos as opposed to reproductions. I bet folks would like to hear more of their diversity of sound.
Mark--I can do that. The sound of the period banjos does differ depending on the vintage and construction. However the reproduction instruments are remarkably similar to the originals, particularly if they are strung with gut. Thanks for the encouragement.
Yeah go for it Rob, it would be fun to see and hear.
Nice, Rob! What a warm sound on that banjo. And looks so cozy there in front of the hearth, looking out on the frosty trees! :)
Strumelia--Did you notice what a nice metronome my school clock makes?
Rob- no, but I'm digging your 'globe lamp'! Sort of an 'old school' version of the lava lamp I guess. lol
P.S. I still recall our nice breakfast together at AEBG last year. :)
Strumelia--The globe is very educational. Ethiopia is a colony of Italy on it. The little guy on the right is my police protection.
