For enthusiasts of early banjo
From Buckley's Banjo Guide, 1868, played on a new Menzies minstrel banjo and an old tambourine of indeterminate age. I didn't have video going so I made a slideshow with a few snapshots from AEBGs past.

In this case the post-production is responsible for the compressed/scratchy sound. I ran the audio through Izotope Vinyl using the 'Attic Treasure' preset with the 'Electronic Noise' setting turned down a bit.
As for the banjo, it was made by Jeff Menzies - I'm still getting to know it but it does have a nice full sound and growly low-end.
I liked the effect. Beware....for cylinder hoaxes now, with this technology. We will need good PROOF when we uncover the hidden Holy Grail of Frank Converse.
Utterly captivating! Made my morning bright and happy. :)
