A new banjo

Posted by frianm on Friday, July 4, 2008

I am now the proud owner of a Baldwin Ode model C.  I was able to trade with another member who wanted one of my Martin guitars.  I am amazed and delighted with this banjo.  I spent the evening earlier this week jamming with some friends and playing either this or my Stelling Whitestar.  They are very different and wonderful instruments.  I love them both.   Both are 70's instruments, the Ode has had a whole lot more use than the Stelling.  Both really cut through the guitars etc.  I now understand why these banjos have been so much prized by folk.

I have been trying out a "Beaver Bridge" from Dave Jack in Ontario, Canada.  I like it.

Not much else - happy fourth of July.

Congrats on your new acquisition. Sounds like a fair trade for both of you.
