Hi, thanks for the comments Derek and AGP. It's Anzac Day today in Australia so may be able to get some more tins, I love the Anzac biscuits so it will be a win win.

Nice artwork on that tin and works great as a banjo. Nice playing too!

You think that's too bad to put on YouTube, you should hear my attempts at Banjo Pickin', love the sound of the Anzac Bicky Tin build, have used quite a few of them for CBG's, but no Banjers, still have a couple left, so of course one of them will now be marked down for a Banjo, but not sure how many strings  :-D

Thanks guy's sorry some can't see this, but as I said I don't play banjo and just put that piece together to show the sound. Too bad to put on YouTube l thought.

Sounds Great. That Tin Banjer has a lively twangy jangle to it...  It appears I'm following you around for a bit today Uncle J.

That playing sounds mighty fine to me.  So does the banjer.
