I'm really enjoying getting to know the new CEB-5 Cello banjo that I purchased from Paul Roberts at banjocrazy.com. It is quite unique in its sound and feel and it inspires a new approach to playing and composing. Just what I was hoping for!
I recently posted an original tune called "Moonlight Serenade" that was recorded using this instrument. I originally wrote the tune to be performed using a conventionally tuned banjo but the CEB-5 with its one octave down double D tuning really enhances the dark mood of the piece.
If you're interested in hearing it, here's a direct link to the tune:

Always inspiring ...I am now torn between my next long term project being trying to make a real stand up bass or a cello banjo.
Meanwhile, I will channel some of this energy into composing
