all of em!! lol...I dunno...I like so many. Currently I am listening to a frailer from Surrey County NC named Kirk Sutphin...he learned from the likes of Fred Cockerham and Tommy Jarrel...he has a fretless banjo with a formica fingerboard. He is a "round-peak" style frailer

I will definitely check this out
Did Fred and Tommy do "down to the cider mill"?
That is an "honest" piece

yup, i saw david holt interview kirk, definitely a great sounding banjo and technique (a young feller)
fretlessintexas has a smooth, relaxed clawhammer manner
