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.

I'm on my iPhone right now. I can see that there are attachments, but I can't see anything to click to open or listen to them.

Yup, having short sound clips is nice! I like them all, Jon.

Jon, these are really cool and I too like having the sound files. I especially like the sound of this one. Nice work.
