Starting to feel a huge void where my banjos used to be :(

Posted by erikforgod on Thursday, May 9, 2013

Even though I am confident my Pisgah banjo and Goodtimes will be recovered, I am still missing my banjos....

Since money is tight, have you thought about *making* a banjo out of a gas (e.g.) can and a stick? I mean it seriously, sort of therapy, like drawing a picture of a loved one. It is also a bit of a defiant gesture.

A good chance to get caught up on your listening to the music, until your banjos come home. Brad

Hey, I see your music interests. Though old time banjo playing is my primary interest, I really enjoy traditional Cajun music, where I move to Cajun triangle playing. That is why I started making the old school triangles, because nobody down there was making them anymore. Now its a worldwide business at a blistering sales pace of 1-2 per month. Of course there will never be a profit when you consider the cost of anvils, fuel, hammers, forge, leg vices, etc. but its my way to participate and provide this unique instrument. Well, one day I get an order from a dude who says he needs one for "forro" music. I ask, what the heck is that. Its Brazilian Folk Dance music. Its also big in Europe now with dance competitions and festivals. The primary percussion instrument for a forro band appears to be triangle, and these gusy are loving my old style pre-war hayrake tine triangles. Now I know Argentina is not Brazil, but you familiar with it. If not, go do some youtubing about it to occupy your mind. brad

ratler has a point. Nothing says "hands off" like a banjo head with sideburns on it.

Ratler - I think burglar hide is a little to thin to make a good banjer head with......might look good mounted on my wall though.
