My Instruments: 1981 Stewart-MacDonald Diamond Eagle mahogony flathead that I built myself. After several modifications over the years it currently has a Price tailpiece and a Snuffy Smith bridge. The old flathead has real presence, It can cut through when called upon. - - -
My second banjo is 1929 Gretsch open back with a generic asian five string neck (to replace the tenor neck).- - -
And just traded my 2003 a NOS Gibson RB250 for a 1989 RB3 Standard inlay. The tone of the pot of the RB3 is really interesting to me.
Other Instruments: Martin DM six string- - - Johnson dobro (totally hot rodded)- - - "Rogue" A style mandolin- - - Two banjo uke (soprano and concert)- - - A soprano pineapple uke
Favorite Bands/Musicians: All time favorite band is the Seldom Scene. To me Ben Eldridge is my absolute favorite among bluegrass players. Also a big Dave Evans fan. Ken Baldauf (see my biography) is another longtime favorite. I like most bluegrass but lean toward acoustic arrangements of non-traditional songs using bluegrass instruments.
Today I tried to write a new biographical section for my BHO hangout biography. I had it in paragraphs but the formatting removed those (sorry). It was something I have wanted to do for a while. Had people to thank and remember. It was a worthwhile excercise for me. These are great days. The BHO is a fun place to interact with other banjoist. See you in the forums.
