|GUEST,Luke||Bass Banjo! (14)||RE: Bass Banjo!||19 Jun 01|
Just thought I'd jot in. IThere is a fellow here in the states Named Reed Martin. he is a superb clawhammer player (5 string). He also plays an old very large 5 string strung with nylon bass strings which he calls a bass banjo. He does not play bass on it, rather dance tunes in the low register. It is a wonderful instrument which I havecoveted for many years. It is fretless and so warm and beguiling.
