Halloween: Did You Know that Banjos Kill Zombies?

Zombie Killer Goodtime BanjoIt's Halloween season and if you really need a killer item, consider a Zombie Banjo! Inspired by the movie “Zombieland” featuring Woody Harrelson whose character at one point uses a banjo to fight off Zombies, Greg Deering created the latest 5-string Goodtime banjo - the Zombie Killer Goodtime banjo. Launched at the 2013 Anaheim NAMM (National Association of Music Merchandisers) Trade Show, the Zombie Killer banjo was a hit with general attendees and dealers alike. With a “blood splatter” resonator finish and a “saw blade-edged” brilliant red flange made with a cut-out zombie-themed pattern to match the fingerboard inlays, the Zombie Killer will capture the attention of the audience without even strumming a note. Now, we just need some great zombie bluegrass music to go after.

Securing Your Valued Musical Instruments - A Safe Way

SafeWe keep hearing about valuable prized instruments being stolen or damaged due to fire or other unexpected events. While insurance will pay some for instruments, provided that they are even insured, the concept of securing them safe and sound is becoming a bigger and bigger issue as the stolen instrument lists become bigger and longer. There has to be a better way. Never, ever, leave an instrument unattended. Not at home. Not in the car. Not at a venue. Just don't do it. It only takes a thief a moment to get it and disappear. If you don't have it with you, the thing that you can do, is to provide a safe and secure place for them in your home.
