Banjo versus TV week 82: Move that tailpiece

A check-in on the Banjo versus TV project — J.R.'s ongoing plan to spend more time on his banjo than on TV. This post covers 9/20/2009 through 9/26/2009.
Banjo 527 hrs, TV 458 hours

I'm continuing to fix up those four low- to mid-end banjos. This week I took a good tailpiece from one banjo and used it to replace the broken tailpiece on another.

Move that tailpiece

Also in the last week:

  • Got a Shubb radius capo for my Nechville banjo. The non-radiused capo wasn't hitting all of the strings.
  • Spent a chunk of time photocopying music from my banjo books to put into one easy-to-carry binder. For a binder, I used the Cardinal 09261 Vertical Easel Ring Binder, which doubles as a music stand.
