Tinkering with 1st and 2nd banjo parts
Sounds great - good timing and tone! I'm in the throes of setting-up a zither banjo - yours sounds really nice.
Thanks :) Hope your Zither banjo is coming along nicely. What kinds of work is being done to it? It's taken a while for me to be happy with how mine sounds ... getting there :)
Well, it was going cheap on Ebay but it did need some attention - some of the machine heads were loose and the string action was too high up-the-neck. Glen Page at Andy Banjo (The Banjo Works) did an overhaul including adjusting the neck to lower the string action and replacing some missing wooden blocks holding the machine heads in place. However, it came with a standard maple/ebony bridge and floppy nylon strings on the 3rd and 4th - I have changed the bridge and strings which has really made a difference. I think you need to be something of a banjo mechanic to own a Zither. Not for the faint-hearted!
