Disaster Recovery

Posted by ERonshausen on Friday, October 7, 2011

I got back from my cruise only to discover the peg head on my Gold Star had split.  I had taken my Aria on the cruise to practice with because I didn't want to risk damage to the Gold Star!  I did not realize how bad the Aria was until I had to play a gig with it.  It needs a new nut & fret job, plus the "D" tuners are not holding pitch.

On a positive note (pun intended) it looks like I will be able to get the Gold Star back together this weekend.

What was the reason this banjo split Ed?

I had the case leaning against a wall, and it fell over. I'm not sure why it split because the tuning pegs do not touch anything in the case. I assume the head was weakened from years of banging around (banjo is a 1980 model), and the shock of falling over finished the job.
