Great job.  Nice and smooth.

I liked the first banjo you played the best.  Just my opinion.  ( Which one is the first one? lol.. )

Thanks for the kind words..the first banjo is the Huber..second is my old flathead Gibson.. lots of new banjos sound very good these days..very close to the old ones..and the Huber is certainly one of the best new ones..I first posted this in Feb 06, when I first got the Huber..and just thought I would leave it here for those who may have any interest..Thanks again

Wow!  That was a striking difference.  I liked the Huber better (and I'm a Gibson fan).  Nice playing too!

. the B-string on the -75 "sings"  with more brilliance than the Huber, but both banjos  sound great.........

To me -handsdown- the second one. If you don't want it anymore, send it to me... ;-) I'd probably set it up for an even darker tone, but that would be about it.

Congratulations, you've got something special there....

I like the first banjo(Huber). It seems to have alot of power and tone. Did you pick one softer than the other and at the same distance from the mic?Good job on the picking...

First thing you are a very good picker, to me these banjos are very closed in tone but the Huber seem more loud.

Ciao Luca.

Thanks for the link Robert, and thanks to all for the nice comments above...Miss Cia certainly has learned to coax the tone out of that Huber hasn't she..

The Gibson has more pop and note separation to me. Also a bit darker tone. Both sound great.
