For the majority of my recording and performances, I play a Deering Sierra Maple Custom 5-String Bluegrass Banjo, which I absolutely love!  This is a masterfully crafted instrument, and the addition of the Hartford Grenadillo tone ring provides a friendly yet full tone and light-weight that makes frequent travel and stage time considerably easier.

For amplification, I use the EMG ACB-5 Banjo System magnetic pickup.  Reliably excellent tone quality, and I don't need to stuff my banjo with anything.  It never touches the head, easy to install, and sounds great.

Reunion Blues gig bags.  The best instrument case I've ever used, bottom line.

Kat Eyz bridges.  Big, clear tone and service as excellent as the product.
