Two Banjos in Two Days!

Posted by revellfa on Saturday, February 14, 2009

Ahhhh!  It has been a wonderful couple of days.

As many of us know it is quite a thrill to discover that package on your porch as you come home from a hard days work.  What could it be you ask?  Why a banjo of course!

Two banjos in two days to be precise! 

I only get to keep one of them for myself however.  Thanks to the generosity of hangout member ban-joe the kids at church will be plucking away on a wonderful parts banjo that has been donated by him.  I'm sure it will bring a lot of joy to their lives!  I'm also sure they will be happy to miss the last 15 minutes of Sunday School for their free lessons that I will be giving them. 

Oh yea and the other banjo...

The next day after receiving the banjo from ban-joe I was quite suprised to get a call from my uncle asking if I would like to trade my 2001 Martin DX-1 (which has an EXCELLENT sound) for his 30s-40s-ish Gibson Kalamazoo five-string.  I could hardly contain myself as I choked out the words....well....sure...I...guess. 

So I am now the proud owner of an original (and almost mint) pre-war banjo. 

Yup, two banjos in two days...I hope this trend continues.
