Today I dusted my collection of banjos a bit. The first you can hear is a Gibson clone, made in USA, the second a Leedy Solotone, the third a Paramount Style "C Special" partially restored by the great Vinnie Mondello and fitting a natural head. I usually don't like the calfskin heads, cause they give a tone less brilliant than Mylar's...but, in this case, I've found that it sounds nicely "vintage". Do you agree with me?

Go Marco! I love the sound of them all......and of course, I love the way you play them all. What kind of mic do I see ?

Thanks Marco, Brilliant.

Hi David, thank you for your nice comment! I use a Behringer T47 microphone: good pro quality, not too much expensive.

Not yet. Norbert is on vacation. Flying to Bremen next week to pick it up. I hope I'll be deliriously happy with it...

Norbert is an amazing builder. I hope you can make a little video when you get it Victor. I would love to hear it.
