Description

What is a tall gourd you say? Well, it’s sort of an elongated, stretched gourd, that’s not short, or flat. Many can be very tall, up to 18-20″ tall. For a gourd banjo, you have to use a short, tall gourd….I think that explains it!  Anyway, what I have here produces a great range of sound and a very unique instrument that’s sure to please.
