"That's good news, Dante. I didn't know Don Reno taught Tony Ellis but I think they were both from North Carolina. I always liked Don Reno's playing since the first time I heard him when I was about 12 years old. Now I'm 75 but I…"

"-Dear Mr jody You were right it was a false string so we got it replaced and my recording king sounds great now with nylon strings. The guy in the shop that fixed my banjo said that the false string that I got was one in a million. I also got to…"

"Dante, another thing you can try is to replace the first string with a light gauge steel string but leave the other nylon strings on if they play in tune. About 100 years ago there were several classic banjo players in England, good ones, who strung…"

Jody Stecher replied to Dante Flores's discussion Hi, I'm new here!
"What I meant was to replace the first string, not to fix it.  The string package will say what the gauge is. Get a different nylon string of a different brand of the same gauge. You can find just about any gauge of single nylon strings at…"

"Dante, It does sound that you may have a bad string. Setup is very different with nylon and banjos aren't the best at intonation to begin with. I would move treble end of the bridge (angle the bridge) until it will intonate correctly and then…"

Jody Stecher replied to Dante Flores's discussion Hi, I'm new here!
"You might have a "false" string.  If the bridge is in the right place and the other strings are in tune up the neck then that probably means the problem is with the string. Either that or the bridge. What happens when you use a…"

Dante Flores replied to Dante Flores's discussion Hi, I'm new here!
"I guess not wrong but more that it wont go into tune correctly. So when I tune the first string to D it sounds fine played open but then as I go up the neck, those high notes are way out of tune even though the string is still in tune when played…"

"Hi Mr. Jason, I put nylon strings on my recording king but I don't know why it still sounds bad on the first string. Did you have any trouble making your nylon strings sound good on your Goodtime? My recording king always sounded fine with…"

"Hi Mr. Jody Thank you for your reply. My banjo teacher gave me a cool bridge and helped my put nylon strings on my recording king but my first string sounds off a little. Maybe I need a new tail piece? I like Deering banjos a lot but I hope I can…"

Jody Stecher replied to Dante Flores's discussion Hi, I'm new here!
""Wrong" in what way?  Usually when there is a disturbing sound on a banjo it is not really a banjo problem. It is a component problem. Like nut problem, bridge slot problem, loose screw in a tuning button problem, rattling tailpiece…"

Dante Flores replied to Dante Flores's discussion Hi, I'm new here!
"Thank you for replying to me! Thank you for the banjo information, I do have nylon strings on my recording king and a cool bridge that my banjo teacher gave me but my first string still sounds wrong. I think maybe I need something adjusted. I…"

"Hi Dante, My name is Jason and I’m 53 years old!  I too am learning how to play classic banjo, although I’ve never played banjo before (I do play classical guitar).  I’m learning on a Deering Goodtime Americana which I…"

Jody Stecher replied to Dante Flores's discussion Hi, I'm new here!
"Hi Dante, I saw your comment about a banjo sounding better than a Recording King. Any model of Recording King should sound excellent for classic banjo if it is set up right. The bridge, the strings, and the  tailpiece make a surprisingly big…"

"Hi Dante, welcome to Classic Banjo! Classic banjo is a style of playing, much like bluegrass or old-time or whatever. They share the same 5-string banjo basis, so really any 5-string will do a fine job. IOW, you can use your 'bluegrass'…"
