*The Soundbird* is a tenor banjo

Posted by Paul Roberts on Friday, March 8, 2013

One way to try to become a prolific banjo player is to have a custom banjo you're responsible for marketing. Hence, my living room has been turned into an audio/video center. YouTube is a lazy man's way to tour - you get to stay at home.

Besides, I have a new mission in life. The instrument I have chosen to promote - *The Soundbird* is a tenor banjo - not exactly the hot ticket at this moment in time unless you are a Dixieland enthusiast or a player of Irish traditional music.

The reason I took the plunge to develop a new tenor banjo: 

1. I wanted one.

2. I wanted to try to introduce the 4-string banjo in a way that would go beyond the stereotype, to offer different possibilities, different contexts.

I've posted three videos and several mp3's in the Sound Off and Video forums. Now that I have something to blog about, I'll try to do more regular updates here too.

Well, back to work in my role of street corner banjo hawker.
