Step right up and give it a shot... even just picking at random, you have a 1 in 16 chance.

Good Point guys. A random guess might serve as a good control for later analysis also.

1) Gibson
2) Hatfield
3) Yates
4) Rich & Taylor

Sorry, I think I might have given false hope... I think the odds are more like 1 in 24. That's what I get for doing mental math.

I am surprised as well. Free strings are a good thing, but I would have done it just for the "thrill of victory or the agony of defeat."

Don't worry about it Mreizs, my random guess wasn't so random anyways. I copied the original list of banjos!

I loved the 'saloon' type ring that #3 has. I am listening on a Dell computer speaker lol and even on that piece of junk I can still hear a huge difference, although my ear isn't nearly trained to know what each are supposed to sound like. So my guesses are as follows...NSWAG!
1)Hatfield
2)Rich and Taylor
3)Gibson
4)Yates

P.S. They all sound fantastic

Well, I think we can call an end to the contest now. It's been over a week and no one has taken another guess.

Here are the Banjos and their track numbers.

1 - Hatfield Buck Creek
2 - Yates RS Arch-top
3 - "29 Gibson TB-1
4 - Rich & Taylor JD Crowe

Thanks for doing it Dave. If you had to pick one to go with you to a deserted island, which one would it be?
