    New Banjo: Recording King RK-OT25

    I started learning Clawhammer a year ago, using my dad's old bluegrass banjo. Lately, I decided that I'd need a open back with a frailing scoop (yes, I "suffer" from chronical BAS) and got myself a...

    Re: Tips for a complete Beginner?

    Hi Jen, and welcome to the Cafe!
    I assume that your OM sits on your right leg? At least, thats the way I hold the mandolin and the OM, and that's also the way many people hold their banjos. However,...

    Re: Mid-Range Plectrum Banjo?

    I don't know any books, but maybe you'd like to take some lessons?
    You could try and get in touch with Sean Moyses, an UK based Plectrum player (one of the best we've got here in Europe), a very...

    Yes, my 4th string is on C, this certainly doesn't make things easier ;)

    I like Pete Wernick's "Bluegrass Banjo" (Oak Publications). However, I always failed to learn to play Scruggs style...

    Melodic Style on Plectrum?

    Hey everyone,

    I've got some Alison brown records lately, and was excited by her fine melodic style runs. As I'm primarily playing Jazz on the Plectrum Banjo while being completely unable to do...

    Re: New to BC

    Welcome, Tony!
    Many of us are active in both forums, I think... Glad to see that so many mandolinists have a dark side ;)
    The BC isn't as busy as the MC, yet - hopefully, many banjoists will join...

    Re: Mid-Range Plectrum Banjo?

    Hi Eric, glad to hear from you. :) You're right, the Tenor is the more natural choice for us mandolinists. But, I must admit that I've always got confused with the CGDA tuning (GDAE didn't work out...

    Re: Mid-Range Plectrum Banjo?

    Hi Eric, how's your Plectrum-adventure going? :)
    Using a 5-string is a very good idea, that's what I did for some time before I had the money to buy my Vox.
    The thing I've never liked about...

    Re: Mid-Range Plectrum Banjo?

    Hi Eric,

    I own a Gold Tone IT 250 F and tested the PS 250 as well as the TS 250 models. In my opinion, they all are very nice instruments and offer a lot "bang for the buck". I have no experience...
  13. Re: Any TradJazz tenor banjo newbies out there?

    Crisscross, that's a nice recording! I had the same "problem" you have now some years ago when I started playing Jazzbanjo, too. However, I don't have any resources for Tenorbanjo, as I've given up...

    Oh, I think i'll have to do some research - never heard of all the names you mentioned!
    Gerry O'Connor's style is great, very colourful. And quite different from the more straightforward style of...

    Re: Irish Tenor Banjo - what have you got?

    I use a Gold Tone IT250F, a 17 fret tenor. Sporting an archtop tone ring, it cuts through in most settings, but has still a nice deep sound.
  16. Re: Pickups and microphones - advice on amplifying the banjo

    Hello banjoeric,
    I have no experience with pickups and banjos, but I always got nice results using the AKG C1000 with a cheap acoustic tube amp.
    I use this setup sometimes when my jazzband plays at...
