Dave Pethtel

Posted by Debbie Daniels on Friday, June 23, 2023

Just wanted to let everyone know that we recently lost a very special friend and banjo player, Dave Pethtel.  Dave went by pdbanjo in his posts, as I recall, and was a frequent forum contributor.

Very sad to hear this, and my condolences.

I had several email conversations with Dave over the years, thru BanjoHangout

Sorry for your loss. I exchanged a few messages with Dave in conversations on the forum. Very cordial.

In The Banjo Forum group on Facebook, someone who recently bought one of Dave's old banjos posted a message on June 4 asking if anyone knew anything about the banjo. I don't know if he made it to the June 17 celebration of Dave's life to bring the banjo and ask about it.

Old Hickory He could contact me and maybe I could get some info on it.

Thanks. I'll post on Facebook for him to come here. Or maybe I'll contact you for your email and write to him saying I can put him in touch with a friend of Dave's. The banjo he has is a yellowish-colored curly maple with hearts and flowers inlay, no name in peghead, and writing by Dave inside the resonator dating the banjo to 1987, I think. Sound familiar? People are left guessing whether Dave built the banjo, assembled it from parts, or just wrote the date of his ownership.
