Thomas Edgar replied to Hal Allert's discussion Radiused Fingerboards
"Ok, I'll play idiot here. Why would a radiused fingerboard be more comfortable to play? One of my guitars is radiused and I just find that it is different, neither better or worse, but part of the guitar's "persona". Of course,…"

Canadian's Parade by Joe Morley Classic Fingerstyle Banjo

"I laughed out loud when I saw the lower half of the picture!  My mom is still apt to give me a head smack now when she is 96 and I'm 65.  There truly is no rest for the wicked! Great march!  Makes me want to put on a red…"

Trapdoor2 replied to Thomas Edgar's discussion Ellis Advanced School for the Banjo and Zither Banjo
"It was a funny email exchange. They had no inventory control at all, couldn't tell me if they'd sold any...ever. They make pitch pipes in batches and send 'em out. The lady I talked to said she could remember making some up recently…"

Thomas Edgar replied to Thomas Edgar's discussion Ellis Advanced School for the Banjo and Zither Banjo
"That's called inventory control, isn't it?  "Let's see, Jimmy, how many of those A-banjo pipes have we sold in the last, ah, 70 years?"  I guess you have to applaud them for their tenacity to serve the banjo public!"

Trapdoor2 replied to Thomas Edgar's discussion Ellis Advanced School for the Banjo and Zither Banjo
"Reminds me of the pitch pipes I found for eAEG#B. I emailed the company and found that they still make 'em in that tuning for banjo. They didn't know it was a 'dead' tuning until just recently..."

"I don't know how well they sold but thimbles were still listed in jobber catalogs into the 1920s."

Thomas Edgar replied to Thomas Edgar's discussion Ellis Advanced School for the Banjo and Zither Banjo
"Hi Joel, I thought about emailing you when I read about the thimbles. Sorry I didn't. I was surprised that a book written in 1900 even mentioned them."

Joel Hooks replied to Thomas Edgar's discussion Ellis Advanced School for the Banjo and Zither Banjo
"Sorry about the tardy reply.  I also thank you for scanning this and sharing it.  From the little bit I looked at it seems to be a solid work with interesting information on playing. I find the thimble comment v. wire strings interesting…"
