Got my new Helix banjo on Wednesday morning.
I had my first jam Thursday night with it. My regulars playing buddies are saying that this open back banjo (although it has an internal resonator) is louder than my Maple Blossom!
I think think the jury is still out on that, but it weighs about half what the Blossom weighs, so if its even close that's pretty amazing.
I'm gonna' tinker with some setups and bridges, but I really think I like this thing.
Pics and sound files to follow.....
I'm gonna' enjoy the ride. ;-)
