Photos of a Tom Barriball Banjo.

I am led to believe that Rob Murch has one of Tome Barriball's hand made Banjo's but I could be wrong. They were made by him in a small workshop right next to his home and everything was don by hand. He was a very good handy craftsman and as a child I remeber him doing a lot of "veneer inlays" and french polishing on alsorts of things. I know he made a "Haiwiian Guitar" which he cut from an old piece of mahogany and was solid. He electrified it and the sound was absolutely unforgetable. He used to take it round when he played in his various dance bands. Played with "finger picks & a specially shaped "thumb steel"
