The banjo shares many of the same sonic qualities as a harpsichord, so although it's so closely associated with more homespun genres, the instrument actually lends itself very well to classical music! The pieces in Bach for Banjo are in tablature only with chord symbols, arranged at the beginning to intermediate level for five-string banjo players. As in classical guitar arrangements, the melody and harmony are combined. Most pieces are on facing pages with no page turns required, and beginners can pick through the selections at a slow pace. The book features just the best-known parts of 20 beloved Bach pieces: Air on the G String , Arioso, Minuet in G, Sheep May Safely Graze, Sleepers Awake, and more.

Black anodized steel capo w/ locking crossbar & adjustable thumb screw. Long wear, no buzz. Crossbar slightly angled to compensate for string size difference. Thumb screw pulls from center to give even pressure on all strings.
Please keep in mind that it's very important to follow the instructions for use, especially for releasing the capo. Players tend to release the capo with full tension applied. This puts too much tension on the corners of the threads. The capo needs to have the tension relieved a bit (about a half turn is good) before releasing it with the Clik button.

Deering worked directly with the folks at Cooperstand to make this customized Deering wooden banjo stand. Made of African Sapele Mahogany, the stand is great for both openback and resonator model banjos. This new stand has several advantages:
· Compact…folds down small enough to fit into many gig bags and instrument cases. This makes traveling with one much more convenient.
· Protects finish on your banjo…because it is made of wood, there are no metal pieces that can scratch or damage your banjo finish.
· Stable construction… the stable, lower profile prevents running into the banjo stand, causing possible damage to the instrument.
· Enhanced aesthetics…the wooden stand is beautifully crafted to enhance the home or studio environment.
In short, this custom Deering wooden banjo stand combines artistic good looks, versatile full size, functional strength, with minimal size compatibility, and portability. All of this in one very small package.

"The banjo is a fairly loud instrument acoustically but very difficult to amplify. Through a mic the banjo often sounds harsh and thin. Most banjo pickups over emphasize the treble tone of the instrument and miss the tonal depth. The Kavanjo pickup gets it just right....your banjo only louder! When I am playing a concert with Doc Watson we often play for 2000 people, sometimes and many as 250,000. A mic just won't deliver the full tonal range of the banjo when it is cranked for giant audiences. Even in these extreme situations the Kavanjo performs perfectly. It allows me to keep the banjo in the mix even when Doc is plugged in and at high volume.
Thank goodness there is finally a great pickup that amplifies the tonal warmth and power of the banjo!″ - David Holt
