- 1935 Gibson Kel Kroydon. Huber HR-30 ring. The maple and ebony neck is probably from the 50's. This is a fantastic banjo!
- Gibson RB-250; a 1974, mahogany neck, two piece flange. It records fantastically, sounds great up and down the neck, the 4th string growls, and the back-up leaps out of it.
- 2007 RK Deco King. A killer banjo that needs to be played in some more.
- 2012 RK Madison. RK-36. A great mahogany neck banjo which stacks up well against banjos worth 4 times the cost. I really love the sound of this banjo; plenty of volume, and the tone will evolve as I continue to play it. I highly recommend these banjos to anyone at any level of playing. Thanks to Greg Rich!
- 2005 Jeff Menzies open-back, fretless

This is a photo of me showing 3 year old Owen Kelly my banjo. His father told me he was crazy about banjos and I thought, "Why not get this kid going at the right age?" Owen imitated my forward roll pretty well.
