Bass Banjo on Soundcloud

The original Bass Banjo is a one-of-a-kind  instrument made by David Donaldson and Stuart Porter back in the 1980s, for use in an outdoor marching band.


It was created using an old bass drum and a cut down finger-board from a double bass. It has a very individual, loud, resonant sound that has stood the test of time and has been heard on many recordings and soundtracks over the years, as well as anti-nuclear protests and Christmas parades.

The time seemed right to sample it, and add it to MODWHEEL’s collection of unique, virtual instrument sample libraries.

Now everyone can enjoy the great sound of Bass Banjo.
