This is the third Copperhead banjo I’ve made.  The peghead and the frailing scoop have a hammered copper plate that has been chemically treated to produce an antique patina. The Large 10-12″ canteen gourd produces great bass tones. It has a natural goatskin head that is attached with black tacks. This one is sure to be an attention-getter as well as a great player.
