I picked up a nice steel string banjo at a local auction on the weekend. It's a Lyon & Healy "Mystic" - from about 1895 as far as I can tell. It's "mutated" a fair bit from its original form, with new planetary tuners, steel strings and a fibreskin head. Great for clawhammer playing. Does anyone know if these banjos were actually made by Lyon & Healy or contracted out to some banjo company?
