I think the title says it all. Do they ever? I know one great banjo player that still plays with his dads nationals after his father passed 30 years ago. I know some who go through them nightly.
Reason I mention it is I broke down and bought another pair of Sammy Shelors. I felt like my first few years of playing experimentation had bent them to some places where they had lost that long defined rounded edge. Thought a new pair would give me the change to get back to playing as they were when they were new. I also noticed with Ben’s last video to me concerning hand position his SS were not adjusted at all, just turned on the fingers.
So what say ye?
