Hi all - first post on "this" Hangout but a longtime member of the Banjo Hangout! I am a scholar of 1940s/50s music, specialized in Blue Grass music (but I also play hillbilly music and western swing).
Benny Martin is my favorite fiddle player, and the tone and ideas he had are unmatched in my book.
I was just wondering if anyone would know what fiddle he played (in the 1950s) and what gauge string etc...
Thanks a lot!
