The banjo of Dave Talbot  vol.2

Written by Recokin

Therefore, I tried to play "Fireball Mail". But, a banjo comes below my waist because its strap is too long. So, when I pulled up a banjo by bending my left knee, and played it by a shape like the scarecrow of one right foot, the brothers Talbot burst out laughing :-)
(Yes. Dave has younger brother 'Bob' who is living in Kyoto, Japan for several years.)

The tone was not the sound which is imagined walnut sound. It seemed more like the sound which resembled the Osborne Chief made of maple. Its response was fast, and I didn't feel stress when I played it. Moreover, its sound was emitted almost evenly from top to bottom of the neck, and very well-balanced was the feature. In a word, this may be the "sound" of the Neat banjo. Incidentally, I think it certain that the Osborne Chief is Sonny Osborne specification of Neat banjo.

Incidentally, though its capo was McKinney type, it was neither McKinney nor Eliot. It had a carved seal of "Neat". So, is its name 'Neat Capo'?

...Well, the explanation of 'Dave the banjo freak'...I decided without permission:-)...didn't stop.

Dave : Its tonering is Blaylock.
Recokin : My 75 has Gold Blaylock.
Dave : Hum... My ring is no-plated (without plating).
Recokin : Well, my acquaintance have it, too. Is it has no hole?
Dave : No. Mine has 20 holes. Do you see it?
Recokin : What!?

To be continued...
