*Main player is an old 11" tenor off of ebay with a Little Wonder style tone ring I converted into a 5 string.
*old "frankenstein" spunover pot banjo from parts that I converted to fretless.
*An old no name parlor banjo with a spunover pot and nice wood marketry inlays in the neck, it is a nice sounding banjo.
* homemade minstrel style fretless, 12" pot with tacked on skin head. It's a purty good first attempt at this type of banjo and it turned out OK. Better sounding than looking.
**many more to come....

had a banjo in the home since late 70's, started learning scruggs style...but never pursude it vigorously. My interests in the Civil War and Old West history and the banjo caused me to switch to clawhammer / frailing styles. I play with a group of ner-do-wells called the Dr. E.T. Bushrod medicine show. Now calling us a group is putting the cart before the horse. But we have a grand time with it all.
