During this past week I made the sound of my Gold Tone Irish Tenor go from almost horrible to wonderful, and most of the modifications were easy, totally free or very inexpensive and were based on common sense. Even if you don't have this particular banjo I believe that you can benefit from reading what I did because this banjo uses typical construction methods such as twin coordinator rods, resonator, etc. So I posted what I took off, added, and did to the banjo on the "Blog (Ideas)" page of my website (click on the link at the left).
It tears me up when I think about all the people, adults and a lot of kids, who love the sound of a banjo and then when they finally get one it sounds like crap. The trouble is that any banjo is just an assembled bunch of parts and every banjo player has to understand how the parts work together to create a great sound. Fortunately BHO is a big help to all of us in this area. It has helped me and at this moment is allowing me to urge you to read my blog entry about the five things that I did to make my new $350 banjo sound GREAT! (I can hardly wait to take it to the next Irish session and hear the comments.)
