This was recorded just a couple of days after I received the new banjo. The banjo has four sympathetic strings which become active when the other five are plucked. This gives the instrument a silvery shimmery sound. The concept was taken from the Viola d'Amore, an instrument similar in the viola family but with with sympathetic strings which are not bowed, but activate (vibrate) when the other strings are bowed.

What an incredible sound. Fantastic collaboration of player and builder.

Neat! Love the openness of the sound. Lots of natural reverb.
