Fig... is the intention to provide heat or light, for any ensuing discussion?
My tin ear says: "What's to discuss?" But granted, other people "hear things" ..... that I don't.

That was a fun video to make. We’ve come a long way with the business since then. Whether one gleans anything from the video or not I guess is up to the individual. Nevertheless, I enjoyed doing the comparison between one of our banjos and a mostly original Gibson “parts” conversion. Glad to be building our own brand now with our own parts and concepts as well as continuing to make conversion necks occasionally.
Hearing for ones self is the only fair test..
Results may vairi....
They both sound great. To my ear, and over my speakers, if I had to pick one it would be the new banjo. Has a skosh more pop, which I like.
Whatever mic and equipment you're using to record, both banjos are burdened by WAY TOO MUCH sustain.
I agree with The Old Timer , sustain to my ears is like a Cross made of garlic to a sick Vampire. BUT, i never judge an instrument over a Youtube
You can't make a judgement about the sound of a banjo by hearing a recording of it. You have to play and hear the instrument acoustically.
Moreover, even when you are playing the instrument acoustically, you can't know what it sounds like to a listener who is standing in front of you and listening while you play it. The sound heard in front of the instrument is different from the sound heard from behind the instrument and you can't be both behind and in front of the instrument at the same time while you're playing it. It's the great Banjo conundrum.
I thought down the neck they sounded pretty much the same ,but i preferred the new banjo sound up the neck , clearer sound
wowzer so much sustain,,,, why is that ?
