LicketySplit Banjo - Posted - 07/09/2011:  01:56:59



 



If anyone is looking for a LicketySplit Banjo (TM), I have some news: The original creators of the LicketySplit Banjo will soon be making a new batch of about 10 of these delightful hand-crafted instruments.



These 3-string banjos have an impressive sound, are easy to learn to play, and are fun for the unskilled and experienced musician alike.

That sounds really nice. I wish you luck, but a lot of people here will accept no less and no more that 5 strings on a banjo. big



Keep up the good work.

Here's a clawhammer version of Waterbound that I did on a LicketySplit ca. 2003, when we were dealers and had them in stock.  We still have one at home on a stand in the living room--Benjamin loves it (and I do play it from time to time)!



Cheers,

Thanks for that wonderful clip, Zepp. What is the tuning on these? Is it like the strum-stick/mountain dulcimer?


ZEPP - Posted - 07/09/2011:  11:20:00



Thanks, Gary.  As I recall, it was tuned GDG (or those intervals at any rate), so yes, it is kind of like an upside down dulcimer, i.e., the high string is where it is on most stringed instruments (closest to the floor), rather than where it goes on a lap dulcimer, with the high string closest to the player.



Cheers,

ZEPP

That is a lot like the strum-stick I own. It might be a fun thing to fool around with.

I was just speaking with Mary Gordon of Celestial Mtn. Music about these yesterday. We were lamenting the end of their production. I still have mine, which I bought to encourage our kids to play when they were younger.

It's basically a dulcimer scale I believe, so it sounds cool no matter what you are playing. There are a couple of song books also (banjo.com has them), but you can figure out most songs for yourself. Chords are very easy. It is a lot of fun and a very quality, well-made instrument. Made in America, too. They even came with a nice, custom gig bag.

These ten will probably go very quickly.
