I’ve recorded all 4 of my banjos to the same two short tunes and uploaded them onto my page on kompoz.com.
'93 Rich & Taylor JD Crowe
’11 Hatfield Buck Creek 10th Anniversary
’11 Yates RS Archtop prototype
’29 Gibson TB-1 conversion w/ original hoop (no tone ring)
Not necessarily in that order.
I’d be interested in hearing which one you think has the best tone, why, and what you were playing the tracks on.
If anyone can guess all four banjos correctly I will send them their choice of one set of Martin SP or Elixer nanoweb guitar strings (Med guage), or two sets of GHS JD Crowe (Med. Lights) Banjo strings. Everyone gets one guess, so take your time listening.
Here is the link to the tracks:
How’s that for a nice little contest?
