This website is dedicated to photos and descriptions of the many banjos in my collection, along with a few other vintage instruments I have picked up over the years. I have authored this site in the hope that other collectors might follow suit and share photos and information on their banjos with others in the collecting community. Since my interest in banjos stems in part from my interest in...

Banjo Rehab Center, Banjo Restoration - All banjos deserve a second chance. In archery, the flight of the arrow is dependent half on the arrow and half on the archer. Most factors in a banjo tend to remain constant, but changing the head can appreciably alter the voice of your instrument in one simple step because of differences in plastic material and thickness. Most heads are made of Mylar...

Most of the banjos I recover need a new neck and some replacement parts. I shape the necks using manual tools ( raps, files, sanding blocks, chisels, drawknive, spokeshave) and take all the time necessary to make sure it is comfortable and easy to play. Every neck is made with the best quality wood and parts. Inlays are Mother of pearl or Abalone, I do not use plastic or synthetic inlay...

I take an old banjo, disassemble and clean it, repair any damage, replace the missing parts as necessary (either with period spare parts or new reproductions as available), set it up for maximum playability, and get it back into circulation at a reasonable price. I usually have a number of projects going, some of which are featured here. In the future, I will be adding pictures of banjos from...

Banjos have been a passion of mine for many years. In the 70's I used to follow The Gatsby Five Jazz Band led by clarinetist Dick "the stick" Jones with John Bastable on the tenor banjo. David Price would often be there too and play his plectrum banjo.I ju. 40 years ago with street markets such as Portobello Road, the reality of finding a banjo case on a stall or in a corner of a junk shop was...

As I was working on this book project, I stumbled onto another kind of resource that might represent a second generation of recordings that themselves represent a potentially important, and somewhat more modern research tool: private recordings of banjo workshops and retreats conducted during the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s that capture much in the way of the music but also record the musings of the...
