"As far as I know Bill Evans still has it. He now lives in New Mexico so that's where that banjo probably is. And I still have its sibling here in San Francisco."

"Hi Pat, I should have been more specific. I own the complete set of master metal stampers that were used to press the albums. They're in fantastic condition and could be used one day to make new pressings. Regards, John"

"I own the masters of these recordings, but I've been unable to ascertain who (if anyone) owns the rights to them. One day I hope to have a new batch of pressings made. "

John Cohen replied to morten lind's discussion about classic banjo action
"No, the 25lb is for the 1st and 5th strings. The 30lb is for the 2nd string, and the 40lb is for the 3rd. For the 4th you need to buy a silver plated wound string of some sort (either nylon or silk). I recommend .024" for that string. "

John Cohen replied to morten lind's discussion about classic banjo action
"No, that's the test weight of the line. I believe the 25lb is .016", the 30lb is. 018", and the 40lb is .022". The spools are not always labeled with the diameter. "
