An Essay on the Banjos of J. French
Photo Gallery of J. French Banjos
J. French banjos were manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio, from about 1873 until about 1900. This web site presents the findings of my ongoing research into French's life, and catalogs extant J. French instruments. This site is a work in progress, and will eventually include much more information and content.
interested in hearing from anyone who has a J.French banjo or knows any
information about French's life or history. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any information or questions.
