"Hi Becky. The previous owner had the banjo configured for clawhammer style with light gauge steel strings.  Simply installing Nylgut was not sufficient.  A new bridge, new tailpiece and a neck reset put everything back into proper…"

Stewart Orchestra

If advertising an item of interest to this community violates any protocol, there will be no hard feelings if the moderator deletes this note!For certain reasons, having nothing to do with the instrument itself, I find I must part ways with my S.S. Stewart Orchestra.  The banjo is listed on the wilds of ebay "Vintage S.S. Stewart Orchestra", but I am most interested in seeing the instrument find a home with an enthusiast of the classic style.See More

"You are tireless, Ian!  Thanks (again) for your work. To refine what you wrote, I observe this statement: Classic Banjo is played on a five-string banjo (either old or modern) strung with nylon, nylgut or gut strings with the bare fingers;…"

"Hi Michael: Picking up on Trapdoor's comments, US banjo historian Eli Kaufman believes the American Guild's 1907 decision to embrace C notation ironically contributed to the 5 string banjo's rather rapid loss of popularity in the US.…"

"Ah!  So the banjo (in some circles) was considered a transposinginstrument.   The music was not read or written at concert pitch, much like a Bb clarinet or Eb alto saxophone.   In that case, Isuppose, we would say "A…"
