SAVOY TENOR BANJO 1928

This was owned by my late father-in-law H.M. Dyer, and willed to me. A very traditional, plain, open-backed tenor, bare bones in a way, with an age-old sound that records beautifully I used this on several albums, including “A Bigger Piece Of Sky” by Robert Earl Keen, and “ Porch Songs” & “ Pigg River Symphony” by Cathryn Craig, where the stark yet resonant nature of this old boy seemed to fit the bill.
