The benefit of my entire family having Covid, I have time to add banjo lights!
Awww man, the whole family got covid. I’m so sorry to hear that, but thoughts and prayers everyone makes a swift and full recovery.
And the banjo lights are cool! Can you actually play it with those in there? Cuz you just might have to post us a Christmas video…
Sorry that your family has “the rona” as the kids in school here say. Prayers for a full recovery. The lights are pretty awesome–I’m guessing battery.
@Simone I need to make some additional modifications as lights somehow affect it staying in tune. Also, they kind of muzzle the sound a little. But, thanks for the prayers! We’re doing fine - son had a fever for about a day. The rest of us felt like we had a mild cold.
@blkelk31051 Thanks for the prayers. Yes, they are battery powered LEDs.
David you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. You banjo certainly brings so warm Christmas cheer
Hope you and your loved ones get rid of the vid ASAP. and my question is how long of an extension cord you pack with that??? Oh I geuse it depend on where your gigs at ! (awesome they look cool)
Hey @jon1 it is actually low voltage LEDs that run on a battery pack I just sucure to the back of the banjo.
Hope you can change the color’s that would be a bonus!!!
David, that is too cool! Looks awesome, hope you and your family are well and Merry Christmas!
@Jeff_Perryman always great to hear from you. We’re about over the rona’ - hope things are going well out in NC for you. Merry Christmas!
Man, I thought I was cutting edge by just having lights. Tough crowd!
That is excellent! Absolutely brilliant!
I saw a battery powered set of lights that responded to music (might have been at walmart). I am thinking Ben needs to buy a monopoly share of those for sale at the General Store for next Christmas.
You are a smart man.
So, the choir director at my church saw the banjo lights & asked me to play a couple songs for the Christmas Eve service. (Lots of fun) Anyway, the lights in the above picture were touching the banjo head & really muffled the sound (even though they looked cool). So, I removed the lights and secured them to the resonator and kept them from touching the head. I also attached them to the outside rim of the resonator. Anyway, when I made the change, the sound was unaffected & the banjo sounded like “normal.” “Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house . . . some redneck was trying to figure his banjo lights out.”
