Whoo-hoo! New BANJO!

Posted by David M. on Friday, April 16, 2010

My new (used, 2005 model) Bart Reiter Standard 5-string openback came today.  I love it.  Lots more volume and pop than my last one.  Did a trade with Spruce Tree Music in Madison, WI.  Someone's played it heavily, you can tell, but it's in really good shape.  Got to now venture out into clawhammer from this 2-finger thumb lead picking I've been doing.

I really like getting new things to try out, especially instruments.  This very well could be my last banjo (but I think I remember saying that about an old fiddle I had, 8 or 9 fiddles ago...). 

Gonna be a good, fun weekend, yall.

Congrats! I know the feeling. I haven't yet concluded the negotiation, but I have a very sweet banjolin sitting in between my fiddles right now, home on approval. I'm liking it a LOT!

Have fun playing with your newest family member!

Good for you, David. It's always great finding a nice instrument.
