New Banjo!

Posted by Banjov1 on Saturday, January 1, 2011

I got a 2008 Huber Custom Lancaster yesterday. It's got the style 75 inlay and headstock and an HR-30 tone ring.

Color me Ecstatic!!!

Here's a video of the new banjo that my wife filmed (and sang backing vox ;) )

Guess I'll be changing my playing level back to beginner if thats Novice...
Very impressive picking Tony! The wife did good in her choice of banjos for ya!

Thanks Matt. The way I look at it, there's no intermediate level and novice covers a big range of playing ability. And actually, you should know this, you've got a new Huber yourself. I'm not really playing the banjo... it plays itself ;)

Banjov1 Says:
Sunday, January 2, 2011 @10:06:59 AM

Thanks Joe. The little camera that we recorded it on doesn't do it justice, but you're right... it's got some pop!

Tony you're a riot my friend! Not only is it great listening but you look like you're having so much fun! Awesome job T! And yeah I'd say you"re 'Purdy good"

Banjov1 Says:

Thanks Matt, it's hard not to be having fun when you've just gotten a new Huber and your wife is helping you sing "Rabbit in a Log"

Brilliant, the banjo sounds awesome and you smile when you sing, so many people look pained, not you, fantastic.

Sounds great! Can't wait to jam (partially so I can play it ;).

Banjov1 Says:

@ John - thanks John, you should come out to the meetup this weekend and play it
@ Jane - thanks Jane, some of my licks do feel painful, but it's all fun
@ Terry - thanks man. you can check it out this weekend at the meetup

WOW! Good pickin and singin, Tony, and nice sounding banjo of course. I think you should up your experience level to "pure awesome". That is one of the levels, right?

Banjov1 Says:
Monday, January 3, 2011 @11:39:16 AM

Thanks Dave, if it's 'pure awesome', it's only because I stole half the licks in this clip from you. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up with you at a show next month.

Banjov1 Says:
Monday, January 3, 2011 @12:50:54 PM

For anyone interested, here's Dave's clip with the Hillbilly Gypsies that I pulled most of these riffs from... youtube.com/watch?v=gyyVIBuPFwk

Tony would love to play it, but unfortunately I have to work all weekend. Hopefully in 2 years when school is finished I can find me a normal job with a normal work week.

Every time I am in a not so good mood I watch this video and all is well with the world, Tony I am warning you know I am going to try to upload some more recordings this weekend.... So run for the hills, lock up the dogs, and call your nearest audiologist, since with my playing you ears are guaranteed to be damaged WooHoo! So its all your fault for giving me the gutd at my level of playing to post them LOL

Banjov1 Says:
Tuesday, January 25, 2011 @6:20:36 PM

Hey Dave, thanks for the kind words. That really means a lot.

No running for the hills here... me and my dogs (cats actually) are waiting with baited breath for some new audio clips. The last one sounded really solid for how long you've been playing. Also still really excited about that banjo you have on order. Can't wait to see some video clips with that puppy.

Great picking and love the singing along!

I'm saving my pennies for a Huber Roanoke someday. I played a Kalamazoo last summer, and was hooked on the Huber feel and sound.

Banjov1 Says:

thx Ken. I may end up with a walnut Huber some day too. They're awesome banjos. If you get a chance... check out the "Huber Love" group... banjohangout.org/group/huberlove
