Tapping the head with the resonator off, then with it on for the last 3 taps. I tapped with the meat of my fingertip about 2" in from the edge of the head.

Some testing of the intonation on a straight bridge, tilted, not tilted, and in the theoretical scale position, compared to a Davis compensated bridge. Please forgive my long-windedness.

This is a song I wrote and recorded when I was with the Blackland Prairie Boys. Dobro - Ken Brown, Bass and baritone vocal - Clayton Elliott, Guitar and low tenor vocal - Marty Roberts. I'm on banjo and lead vocal. The band broke up about 10 years ago when Clayton got a real job.

This Don Humphries song has been done by Del McCoury and the Nashville Bluegrass Band. My version was done with an RK80 and one of xnavyguy's 5-legged bridges with the feet running parallel to the strings. The bass part was done with an Ashbory bass fitted with polyurethane strings. I'll take the blame for all the parts.

Three different versions -- are they different banjos, different setups (bridge, head tension, tailpiece), different microphones, different strings, different picks, or something else? ------ As revealed in the Three Different Somethings topic, the difference is three different sets of picks. The banjo, btw, is my old Fender Artist, Remo head at about G#, one of xnavyguy's latest BG bridges with Presto (non-original) tailpiece.

A little bit of Banks of the Ohio recorded on my RK80 with the Wyatt bridge I won in the bridge drawing here. Recorded outside on a Tascam PR10, so there's some wind noise but no room sound.
