Banjo Contentment

Friday, October 13, 2017

Experience has taught me you don't need the top of the line, most expensive or most collectible banjo to make you happy. Even a valuable old prewar does not guarantee bliss. The best banjos are the ones you discover by culling through them and finding the tone and playability you are looking for. Don't  fall for all the hype or the herd mentality. I've owned expensive, highly promoted and highly collectible banjos that really didn't sound that much different or better than some affordable everyday banjos (some worse).  Any banjo regardless of price or pedigree can potentially be a hoss and every banjo is different even within the same batch. You just never know. Look for the banjo that speaks to you. Don't worry about the name on the peghead or how much you paid. It's your own personal satisfaction that really matters. And remember, in many ways the banjo itself is not the most important part of the equation. It's simply an extension of your own skill and playing style. Much of the tone (or lack of) comes from you.
