Very sad about Hal.   He was a legend and a trail blazer in banjo web world.   His " Classic Banjo " website is a real treasure.   He also happened to be a bloody nice bloke.   We are going to miss you mate.   You have certainly left a void in the banjo world.

Condolences to his family.

I have been a way for a while - I got distracted trying to learn some AJ Weidt pieces on the tenor banjo - but I now have the itch to start playing the 5-string banjo again.

"Hi, Philip, In my experience, there are small tears that don't affect the tone of the banjo - yet! But they do get worse, and it's best to get a new vellum. I see that yours is a zither-banjo - I've re-headed a Windsor zither-banjo…"
