After a wander in the banjo wilderness, it is good to see that you found your way home. Welcome back Rob, from all of us, I am sure!

I believe he is still alive and very interested in banjos. In response to your comment about people de-tuning their banjos, I do it on some of mine because I am worried about putting too much stress on an instrument over 120 years old.
I'm glad you're impressed with Carrie Horgan. So am I! I've also been a big fan of yours for a very long time and always insist that anyone interested in classic banjo should first listen to you before doing anything else (if they haven't done so already.

Many thanks for your reply, Rob. One of these days I'll find out who 'G W Temlett' was!
All the Best,
