Does anybody here know what gauges of fishing line Tom Barriball used as strings? Also, does anybody know the source of his tortoise shell picks?

John Cohen replied to thereallyniceman's discussion Very sad news. R.I.P. British banjo player John Field
"John was a dear friend and as a classic banjoist was an invaluable compatriot to me and I'm sure many others. I knew he wasn't well but am still shocked by the news of his passing. Honestly I am a little lost for words."

"It's more banjo than anybody could ever need.  I've been using it as a concert instrument given the size and volume.  It's also nice having the long scale but a full 22 frets.  I'm only selling to fund another…"

"It’s a great banjo and plays well with both a 1/2” and 5/8” bridge depending on one’s taste in action height. There is another party who’s close to pulling the trigger, so if your student is interested please have them…"

"I will alert one of my students. This might be a perfect banjo for her. I read the sentence about "sourcing " another set of tuners but did not understand the meaning of "source" as a verb."

"I found another set of tuners for my project, so I've updated my ad to indicate that all the tuners currently on the Tubaphone are included."

John Cohen replied to John Cohen's discussion A couple of fine classic banjos for sale
"Yes, it's a modern neck and I need those tuners for another project.  As I state in the ad, I'll source another set of tuners of the buyer's choice."

Excellent Tubaphone for sale

I'm selling a monster classic banjo from my collection, an early '20s 11 13/16'' Tubaphone pot with a custom neck made for Bill Morris.  The neck is profiled off of a Van Eps recording banjo and has a 28'' scale and correct Vega inlays.  The action is perfect for classic style playing with a 5/8'' bridge.  I have it set up with my favorite string gauges (.017, .019, .028, .024w, .017)  You can see pictures of the banjo here:…See More
