String Banjo-This is a custom made Deering Banjo
(see link) that I designed for a specific sound I wanted.
It has a 4" deep pot and a wooden tone ring. This gives
it a bright but mellow, woody sound, perfect for playing
my style of clawhammer banjo.
The signatures on the inside are from some of my banjo
heroes that I have worked with over the years: Doc Watson,
Grandpa Jones, Pete Seeger, Bill Monroe, Ralph Stanley,
Tommy Jarrell, Roy Acuff, Earl Scruggs, Wade Mainer
and John Hartford.
