Thread Name: banjolin/mandobaj?
Subject: RE: banjolin/mandobaj?
Many years ago we used a Vega Little Wonder in our performances, and, as I recall, played a break with it on one of our albums, now out of circulation. We thought it a fine instrument, in that it was a unique voice which fit in well with certain songs, and allowed us to change up instruments to provide variety in our concerts. I sometimes switched to a mandolin-banjo (a German maker--can't remember the name). Now I use a Deering Banjo Lute for accompanying soft/slow vocals where my banjo would be less appropriate.
