Timara String Drops

Posted by Jim Pankey on Sunday, April 27, 2008

Thanks to Tim Wallis over at the Timara Custom Shop I'm sporting a couple of his String Drops on the Phantom today. Now, mind you I'm still getting used to them, but so far I'm happy with the results.

I saw a video of Tim a couple months back, and was excited about his device. It looked simple enough, but most importantly it looked like it would be just the trick for the Phantom. Installation was a breeze, and I had them up and running in minutes.

Check out this video:

So, do you have a banjo with a different peghead shape that just wouldn't work right or look right with the other tuners on the market? If so, think about these. Be sure to check them out at Oh, and tell Tim I sent you!

-- Looks like it would work for all four strings on almost any banjo.  Is this the case?

-- Looks like it has a nice combination of flexibility with tuning, visual indication, can be purchased one at a time

Jimbo, That is the most handsome Resonator banjo I've ever seen! Would you post "Rock the Cradle Joe" on that so that I could compare to your Ramsey Woody? Some of my buds are wantin me to spring for a Res. Banjo and I have neer seen too many that I would want to own ... But that Nechville ... :>0 MrP [Eddie]
