Charlie Brown Backyard Banjo - front 

Posted 9/10/2009 6:01:13 PM

I bought this little banjo on a lark - needed a canoe trip banjo in a hurry. Well I've had it about a couple of years now. I wouldn't have bothered to paint the plywood top, except for the kids took their crayons to it. It is basically a mahogany neck, which runs full thru the pot. The top is 1/8" plywood. The pot is is cardboard mailing tube material. You would be amazed at the tone, and playability! It lacks some volume, and is a little short on the bottom end, but it suits fine for solo pickin' & hotel room practice. I keep it hangin' round at work to fill the idle moments, and as a good conversation piece. The intonation is great, & it stays in tune far better than any of my other "real" banjos. I would highly recommend these as travel / knockabout / throw-behind-the -seat-in-your-truck banjo. No kidding! When I get round to it I'll try & record a sound file. Kudos to the folks at Backyard Music

I bought one of these for my son...he saw your picture and now wants to copy you. He originally wanted to paint it black with red flames. I guess we'll see how it comes out.
