Dallas Musical Instruments

Years after working under J.E. Brewster in 1873, JED began to manufacture banjos in his own workshop for a number of different musical instrument companies in London, England, including Moore and Burgess Minstrels and the Mohawk Minstrels. In 1875 the company John E. Dallas & Sons was born. The brand name Jedson obviously based on the company name. JED had at least four sons, (M.A., C.L., S.J., and E.H. Dallas.) The company was located at 415 Strand Street.
By 1893, the company grew to the point where it needed to take over the entire 415 street facility. The workforce also expanded to accommodate the growth. The company remained focused on banjo making; however, it started to expand into the manufacturing of other types of instruments. The instruments were hand-made and Dallas personally tested every banjo before it left the workshop.

William C. Stahl Banjo Ukulele
William C. Stahl was born in 1869, and became interested in music at an early age. He learned to play banjo and, while still a teenager, composed a banjo solo that was published by S. S. Stewart. Music became his profession, and after teaching for a few years he established a company in Milwaukee that manufactured instruments and published music. He claimed to be the first maker of tenor banjos. In addition to the instruments Stahl built, he also had them built by other companies, including the famous Larson Brothers, under the Stahl name.

Openback banjo ukuleles exist with WM. STAHL MAKER MILWAUKEE, WIS. stamped on the dowel stick. They have an attractive peghead inlay and diamond inlays on the fingerboard. Very likely they were not actually built by Stahl.

Classic Banjo - Rob MacKillop
This site is devoted to the ‘Classic Banjo' – from the 1850s to the early 20th century, the time of Scott Joplin, Ragtime and pre-Jazz eras, when the ‘elevated' banjo emerged from the old minstrel style, with a new technique (plucking in place of striking) and new innovations in construction.

Here you will find links to a growing community of online Classic Banjo enthusiasts, as well as sound files and videos of performances by Edinburgh-based musician, Rob MacKillop.

The site has also begun to explore the early 4-string Tenor and Plectrum banjos.

Welcome! This site is dedicated to an extensive collection of high quality 5 string banjos, the vast majority of which were made between 1875 and 1915 in Boston. Basically, in lieu of a book, I am trying to provide the kind of information I wish had been available as a “primer” when I began collecting. Although it will help beginning students and collectors, it has also been designed for sophisticated banjo lovers. The written information is extensive and photos are numerous and can be enlarged (details in "Web Site Pointers") making it possible to scrutinize almost any feature of every banjo. The site also includes some banjo related collectibles. My major objectives are listed below under “Goals”. I hope the site will be fun, informative, and user-friendly. Input is solicited, especially to call my attention to errors. Enjoy !

Over 200 free backup arrangements
... make practice fun!
These arrangements were created with Band-In-A-Box. If your don't have BIAB then you can download the free midi player from vanbasco. This allows you to adjust the tempo, which is important when you're learning a new tune. Set the tempo to a comfortable slow speed, then gradually increase the tempo as you improve. Always practice a new tune SLOWLY with good SOLID timing. All arrangements are in the key of G unless otherwise stated. The arrangements do not contain any melody - it is your job to play the lead.
