Nice Forrest!  Beautiful sound!  That's the indescribable tone that I hear in my house every night when Robbin is pickin' her KK-10.  The consistency of tone between banjos is unreal!  It's going to be a hard banjo to set down after a session!  I have a feeling this one will end up being your sidekick!

Thanks Kerry.  I'm loving this new Kel Kroydon KK-11.  It's a thing of joy and beauty, plus it sounds i-n-c-r-e-d-i-b-l-e with the Dannick tone ring.  I'm still getting used to it, since I've only had it for ~2 days now, but I can already tell that this will be the first banjo I'll reach for when I go to play.  The power and response is really unreal.  I think I could pick as hard as I possibly could and this banjo would keep on giving.  Tom got it right with these banjos.

It sounds really good but the Huber Rules

Haha! Thanks Wes. You're right about the Huber. These two are Apples and Oranges and I'm not getting rid of either. ;0) I'm really liking this Dannick powered Kel Kroydon.
