Great photo mate,
Do you have a particular one you play more often and do you have nylgut strings on your fretless ?

thanks, Jimiah,

my main banjo is the Doole, second from the left. All Australian made 12" with a tubaphone style tone ring. Great volume, great sound.

Next is the one on its left, an Oakridge mastertone with resonator removed. Sounds good forwhat it is - i use when i need a second banjo for another tuning. The uke is awaiting restoration.

The fretless ( actually semi fretless) is a Samick bottom of the range banjo with a home made scoop and warped copper for fingerboard overlay. I use plain steel strings - usually cast offs from the other banjos.

The Stewart on the end is a 'home use only' banjo and is a nice piece of history. It has a nice, basic sound for plunking around on at home.

Richard
