Gourd Banjo 2019
#53  2019

I have had this small gourd for a long time, so I finally decided to try to make a gourd banjo from it, even if it is said that this shape is not well suited for tigthening a skin on it... The wood is recycling from left over from a preceeding banjo. And it worked out fine ! The sound is nice and powerful enough, at my own surprise.
Nylgut strings, calfskin head (of course).
