Pär Engstrand replied to carrie horgan's discussion No-knot tailpiece questions
"I think there's also different types of no-knot-tailpieces. I have one that has slots cut in to the knobs (in the beginning I thought all no-knot-tailpieces where like that...). I find those brilliant, if they are well made. The one I have…"

Pär Engstrand replied to ritchie thomson's discussion How do I find a decent zither banjo?
"I am constantly looking for zither banjos on eBay. The trick is, I guess, is to take your time and most importantly, be lucky! Of course it also helps to know what to look for, in the case of problem areas. For instance, a high action and a low…"

Jody Stecher replied to Pär Engstrand's discussion Bridges
"If you found out what wood they were made from you know more than me. When these were "the thing" in the 1990s the wood was a guarded secret.  They had a red dot on one side. That's the "spot", though it wasn't…"

"Love it!! Love the new banjo! (very envious, it sounds really great and shorter string length sounds enticing) Love the pipe! Love the expression you put into the piece!Made my morning, thanks so much for posting."

Pär Engstrand replied to Pär Engstrand's discussion Bridges
"You are both right! :-) An added "problem" is also that no two pieces of wood are perfecly alike. Even if one would make two bridges of the exact same measurments and the exact same mass, they would still be slightly different. It might…"

"Oh, and I don't play it very differently from Pip, I noticed. I wanted to put some tremolo in but I really need to practise that first... I'm also very open to critisism. I'm here to learn!"

Jody Stecher replied to Pär Engstrand's discussion Bridges
"You're right. Only one variable at a time will yield meaningful results, or something close to objective results. I think the Hotspot was a great bridge on the particular banjos on which it was great. Bill Evans kept *my* Hotspot bridge on his…"
