Banjo Sound Files

How the banjo sounds is one of the most important factors in choosing an instrument (along with play-ability and, well, looks).  The following sound files were recorded with my iPhone 6s using the DAW Multitrack recording app by Harmonicdog… no EQ or effects and mixed down to 128-m4a for web streaming.  How does a humble iPhone recording stack up to other more sophisticated methods, you may ask?  Well, check out this recording comparison at Tom Collins’ “Banjo Blitz”  you may be surprised!
