As I posted earlier, Tintreach, my electric banjo, arrived yeasterday.

The instrument itself is a marvel. Big Mort took two entirely different instruments apart and made something I have been quietly lusting after since 1985.

In the video, I am running the instrument into a Positive Grid Spark amp*. The banjo and I are still just getting acquainted.

It is going to take me some time to get used to working through an amplifier, not to mention effects. Between the Spark and my Katana Artist, we are going to have a lot of fun exploring the possibilities.

It took a lot of trial and error over many years, but I finally have an electric banjo that works. Now the work begins.
