Nut Material

I need to change the nut on my Clifford Essex Professional. It currently has an ebony one but I'm not happy with the string spacing.

Would you replace with ebony or bone or perhaps something else?

"Excellent sound. It makes my 13" minstrel look tiny. I like the deep bass. That is very brave, playing classic on a fretless."

"Inspiring! It sounds great and has a lot more mid and high range than I thought it would. "

Flying Arrow (1906)...Abe Holtzmann.

This is one of AH's lesser known tunes and described as an Indian Intermezzo, it is typical of similar tunes of that genre written at that time. It suits the banjo well albeit that I had to rewrite a couple of bars and play around with the octaves…See More

"If ebony isn't available, bone does a good job...but I prefer replacing dark with dark. A bone nut just doesn't look right to me if the original was ebony. Any of the harder woods will work so don't hesitate to use stuff like Ipe or…"

"Well done Carrie! Dealing with a new set of inlays is always a problem for me too. I guess I'm more visual than I care to admit. Your ZB sounds quite nice. Unfortunately, your voice is soft and right in the middle of my lost frequencies...no…"

"First vid of new zither banjo!  I think I could work on the dynamics a bit more - am too focused on hitting the right notes (more inlays than I am used to :)"

Bees Wax Rag (1911)..Harry James Lincoln.

Here is another very tuneful composition by HJL. I had to do a bit of editing here and there to make it all fit but the end result is very pleasing. I changed the inversions of Dim7th chords in bars 34-35 and on the piano score, bars 30-33 are…See More
