Tommy Makem banjo setup

Thursday, May 6, 2010

Does anyone have knowledge of what type of setup Tommy Makem had on his Vega longneck.  It looks to me like Grover guitar tuners.  Wondering about strings, tailpiece, head, etc. Did he use a sliding 5th string or RR spikes? picks?

  While I'm asking, I'm also curious as to what type of head Pete Seeger used on his.  Frosted? on the inside or outside? 

Any responses appreciated.
