Lyon & Healy - as estimated by Bernunzio ca. early aughts and a couple of banjo makers - banjo. Also estimated late 19th century. Seven strings set up to play as a five string - the lower two strings are double coursed. Yields a ghostly, ethereal tone - the notes still cut.

On the 'verb

Sometimes the only way to go after the old tones is to play an old machine. Fantastic condition (12.20~ yes, still!) and still a player.

As mentioned in Reverb listing, I liked this banjo so much ca. 2008 I asked Lo Gordon to make a banjo to its pattern - especially the double-coursing. Check out that last pic.
