Jerry, that sounds great. I wouldn't plate that thing - its great just like it is. What is the pot?

Its an 40's Gibson style one type pot. I call it my test pot..Everything fits so loose on it. I fixed it to except any ring.

I also have an old Style 3 banjo. This set up is even better with the 3 resonator which was not used here for this clip.

Just listened to it again. I love it! That sound is so rich - with lots of growl!

Thanks a bunch. I work hard at it. I never give up on trying to improve.

Sounds great Jerry! I could listen to that banjo for days. That's THE TONE that most of us long for. I'm hoping my next banjo will be an old conversion with a JBS ring. Keep up the good work!

Thanks Bryan for the nice compliment. As long as I'm involved I'm never satisfied with what I've got.
