NEW BANJO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by on Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Hello Banjo Hangout folks,

Up until now I haven't had much to say since my original post but today I have some fantastic news... I just bought a new banjo!! It's a used Gibson Mastertone RB-250 (1994) and it sounds fantastic!!  It's a beast compared to my light-weight Rover RB-45 but this banjo makes me sounds a lot better than I really am.


Stay tuned for pictures... coming soon.

Congratulations on your new banjo. I really liked the RB-250 I had. I made a mistake when I traded it in on my openback banjo. I should have just kept it and paid for the openback in full.

Yeah, I owned an RB 250 in 1973, sold it to return to college. I'd rather have had that banjo back! Say, do you know Dan Balmer? I went to college with his brother Andy. (Andy had a Whyte Lady at the time but he wouldn't let me play They are both in Portland, the most beautiful city I have ever visited. You've got a beautiful Sequoia growing out there!

When I brought my new banjo, practicing was given a whole new light. You feel that you can progress faster some how. Good luck with it and enjoy.

You will find that your playing will improve, when you upgrade the quality of the banjo! Have a blast!
