Selling a Hartel Joel W. Sweeney Minstrel Banjo. Item is in excellent condition and has been subject to regular upkeep.

My father was an expert banjo player and I am currently selling off his estate. I am not a musician so I lack the technical knowledge in this realm.

A Bit About The Instrument

Joel W. Sweeney helped popularize the banjo throughout America and Europe. He is occasionally mistaken to be a member of the "Virgina Minstrels," although he sometimes performed with one or two of them.

This banjo was made by Sweeney for his niece, who was left-handed. Dimensions and rubbings came from the original Sweeney banjo currently housed in the Los Angeles County Museum.
