Thanks for your kind words AGP! I think I may have stolen this idea from someone but I can't remember who. Every time I think I may have come up with something original I later realize it was an idea I borrowed from elsewhere!

Outstanding Jim, only you would think of putting a Tambourine in a Tin, sounds great! and as usual the playing speaks for itself. :-)

Thanks BrianQ.

Thanks Dave. I actually wanted to do this with a bracketed tambo so I could adjust tension on the head but this was what I had and it worked out pretty good.

Another fine sounding instrument Jim, you never disappoint! Thanx for sharing, I enjoyed it so much that I watched it again :D

Wow Jim! That’s one ringing banjo! Wonderful. I’ve got two new tambourines to convert to banjos. Mine have brackets so might not fit a tin, but i’ll Try your invention. I know where to get a tack head. :^)

Thanks Derek. My wife said it's my loudest banjo so far. I don't think she meant it as a compliment!
