Very nice, there are very few good zither-banjo videos out there and I enjoyed your playing very much.

Well done, mate!

That banjo looks familiar, I have its twin laying about here somewhere...

Great performance and a nice sound from that ZB... just how it should be.  I like a banjo to sound like a banjo.

I upset "certain" folk with my  joke about "girly" performances and perhaps what I was getting at was that certain players may make great music on the banjo... but don't sound like banjo players. You make the instrument sound like it should.

Keep them coming, Dave!

Very nice job, David. I have a Windsor also. It is nice to hear someone playing it because I don't hear the true sound of the ZB when I play it. I love the sound of the ZB and could be content with it as my only instrument.

It's nice to hear what a zither banjo should really sound like!

Andrew there are a couple of other videos of the Zither banjo being played... check out Ray Jones's page where he plays two pieces:
