My Banjos

Rickard

When I decided to pick up a new banjo, I wanted something nice. One night, while I slept, I heard a banjo playing. Sometime later, I went to the Music Emporium, and tried this banjo. It was the sound of my dreams.

In order to fulfill my destiny of becoming a rock-and-roll superstar, I picked up an electric banjo. In addition to being surprisingly fun to play, it’s quickly become an integral part of my living room banjo recording operation.

Kay

My friend found an old Kay tenor banjo in his attic and gave it to me in exchange for some esoteric books. I restrung the thing with Aquila nylgut strings and tuned it down real low. It’s got a nice growl to it, and real low tension makes it easy on the fingers. Works well with a banjo thimble if you need any kind of volume.

Clementine

Made out of a two-by-four and a cookie tin I found in my parents’ basement, this banjo is one-of-kind!

Fender

My parents changed my life forever when they got me this shiny Fender banjo for Christmas years ago.
