Are you the M Redpath that lived in Coventry in the late 70's and made dulcimers and guitars.

Mr Redpath, we meet at Broughton Castle, you had a booth with instruments and an OT open back banjo, vega if memory serves me. I was stationed at RAF upper Heyford 77-80 and played OT banjo. An Iida FB500 gibson copy. Still have it in fact. My former wife Julia and I lived in Banbury and would come visit on occasion to play and dine with you. I sold one of your guitars to a young lady at RAF Heyford. Last I remember your wife had a little one and then we got reassigned back to the USA. My email is wesmason56@hotmail.com. Headed to the  Galax VA Old Time  Fiddlers Convention next week. OT banjo contest is Thursday and Band it Firday and Sat evening. OT bad is Cornbread and Buttlermilk. Have placed as high as 9th which aint bad for a festival only band.  Hope to catch up with you.

Luscombe Banjo Pitch ?

This has always confused me as the hoop must have been an expensive item to produce , then as it would be now . The other day I was playing through "Thoroughbred Hornpipe" by Thos J Armstrong , so I tuned the Luscombe down to the required tuning and what a revelation , for the first time the banjo sounded great , to my ears at least , even my…
