I have just uploaded an high quality, audio ONLY comparision of five, pre-war Gibson Mastertone style 3 and sytle 75 banjos to my music page at my homepage here on the Hangout.

For particulars about these banjos, please see my previous post about the video version at YouTube.

Thank you, Roger, that was very thoughtful.

This is highly interesting. Especially for us (from another continent) who don't get many opportunities to hear such jewels up close.
Having a RB-1 with a Huber ring makes me feel privileged, hearing how it can really hold itself amongst the higher style numbers.
Don't know how many more banjo's you can add to this 'live-museum'? Keep 'm coming!

My vote for "Thread of the Year'

RB-1 plays with Heartstrings

That was very good comparison. Hard to beat the tone of an original flathead.
