Phil’s Banjo

A borrowed banjo recorded with a trusty SM57...

The story

I borrowed a banjo from my friend’s dad, for a documentary we’re making. While I had the instrument to hand, I decided to test its sampling capabilities.

Recorded with multiple velocities via an SM57 and noise reduced in iZotope, I’m pretty happy with the end result!

I wanted to contribute something of my own (finally), to get the ball rolling and alleviate my fear of not being worthy of submitting anything at all.

I feel like this is the beginning.

  • Inspiring and characteristic banjo.

    A beautiful banjo sampled nicely. The character here is beautiful - it truly has a very intimate, almost nostalgic vibe that feels rather warm and pleasant. A great effort, I will absolutely be using this next time I need a banjo.
