Made a fretless gourd banjo with a kit from @brncrvr banjos. So much fun! Hand sanded and finished the neck, hand painted the gourd, stretched and tacked on the goat skin head, and strung it up with some nylgut strings. Fretless is a lot of fun! Friction tuners however... gonna take some getting used to. The good news is it holds a tuning very well. #fretless #banjo #gourdbanjo

I got me a Menzies! Been an admirer of @menziesinstruments banjos for over a decade and his instruments were an early influence on my builds (they still are). Love it. #gourdbanjo #fretless #custombanjo

Very quick sound demo on my latest gourd buil. The nylgut strings are still settling so i had to catch it before it drifted out of tune again. #handmade #minstrelbanjo #oldtimebanjo #gourdbanjo #madeinlondon #madeinbritain #madeinengland #reclaimedtimber #sustainabletimber #lowcarbonfootprint #ecofriendly #growyourownbanjo

Still making them old school here: A batch of 18th century-esque gourd bodied banjos in the works.

I might have to keep this banjo, as I grow more attached. You hear so much, every tone. #gourdbanjo

Check this out! What is is it? A Strohbanjo? Another great instrument from @brncrvr! I am a proud owner of one of his gourd banjos. It's wonderful! ・・・

Setar•
Repost @russaugust •••
The Persian setar is a small strummed lute made from a gourd or banded strips of wood like an oud. It has a lively and vibrant tone. During the Mughal era, it was adopted by musicians in India who later adapted it to play rags with raised metal frets instead of tied gut frets, and sympathetic strings.

Just testing, will take it apart for sanding and varnish tomorrow. Some very focused sound goes right into your ear for a truly unique playing experience. I'll post some videos once it's all finished. #gourdbanjo

Last detail shot of the Krazy Kat / Marek/ Mande banjo. I squared off the upper part of the neck, like the early heel-less “minstrel era” banjos. I went for the flattest finish I could, found nice “French” style, meaning brown instead of bright brass, tacks, and got a great mottled skin from Djembe Drums and Skins. Check them out a goatskins.com. Great product, great service, Shorty is a friendly helpful guy!

Peghead details of the banjo I made for Marek. I’ve really pared down the peghead from what I normally do on banjos like this, and added some carved facets. The wood is curly maple, stained dark red-brown. It’s a wood-color combo I also have in mind for some 1870s-1880s, Dobson-Buckbee style banjos I have coming up.

Should have this playing tomorrow. #gourdbanjo #strohviolin #carverbanjos

Connecting the dots between the Raja, the Gypsy, and the Nubians.

Many scholars have traced the Roma (Gypsies) lineage from India to Turkey, but there is ample anthropological evidence that the old meaning of Gypsy (from Egypt), and the fact that the Raja and Roma have more in common culturally with the people of North and West Africa, known in Europe as the Moors.

Tons more research and study to do...
