I mean in the same sense a cigar-box banjo or a cookie-tin banjo are toys. Certainly a good musician could play a nice tune on them, but they're not going to sound like a "real" banjo. The rectangular format of the PETE-head banjo, and especially the limited width, limit the acoustic properties and the potential of the head material. But one thing is certain - they are a hoot to play.Steve Senseney wrote:You fooled me!!
