Save The Banjos

A Homemade website by Tim Smith

"Save The Banjos" is dedicated to finding old, beat-up banjos and returning them to playable condition.I get most of my banjos and parts from eBay, auctions, and estate sales here in York County, Pennsylvania.It is remarkable how many old banjos are discovered in attics, basements, chicken coops, and other obscure places almost every day.Mostly, they are "low end" instruments.The "low-enders" were manufactured and sold in the largest numbers and therefore surface more frequently than the expensive models in any particular manufacturer's line.

I don't produce museum quality collectors' instruments.Very few people could afford them.I take an old banjo, disassemble and clean it, repair any damage, replace the missing parts as necessary (either with period spare parts or new reproductions as available), set it up for maximum playability, and get it back into circulation at a reasonable price.After all, banjos are made to be played, not hung on a wall.

I have a number of projects going, some of which are featured here. In the future, I will be adding pictures of banjos from various sources, scans from old catalogs, and anything about banjos and the playing thereof that I see fit.Mostly, you will see 5-string banjos because that is what I have played for many years.

   1870s Fretless Banjo  New November 2010

  The first two parts of this article were posted on Banjo Hangout in the Banjo Building Setup and Repair forum on October 18th and 22nd, 2010.  I'll put them here as time permits.

   

    This is the oldest instrument that I've ever worked on.  It is interesting to me to follow the evolution of banjo making from the one-of-a-kind instrument made in the home shop to cottage industry to mass production in the factory.
