My BanjoCrazy Story

Posted by Janna on Thursday, June 11, 2009

It was really very crazy story about my new Nechville banjo!!!

This is the video about this story:

or here on YouTube:


My new  record named "Classical Gas" played with Athena I've posted here - 

Now I'm sure that Necville banjos are banjos of the future. Tom Nechville is innovator in banjos world. His banjo has very sweet sound, nice and modern look and it has smart and fantastic construction.

Big thanks to Paul Roberts - a man who made this monumental work!!! And now I know - he is just a magician! Maybe one day I could meet him in a real life and buy his GoldTone banjo too, they looks very traditional and nice too, when I'll became a good musician and when I will live in USA ))

And also I want to thank all that people who became a part of this real banjo fairy tale! I love you, friends!

Janna, you made a great choice, on balance, but that's Athena for you!
