Walking Eagle Banjo and Mandolin hybrid (28) RE: Banjo and Mandolin hybrid 07 Mar 04


I had one that was the reverse of Big Jim's. It had the head and resonator of a banjo, and the neck and stringing of a mandolin. It was given to me by my deceased mother-in-law. It seems as these were quite the rage with all girl marching bands in the 30's. Sort of like mummers, I guess. Anyway, I didn't play any instruments then, and besides, it was 'broken' so I either threw it out or gave it to someone. Dumb, dumb, dumb! The strings player in Simple Gifts plays one and does a great job on it. Sounds like an in between of a banjo and mandolin
