The German factory Framus issued a first “Derroll Adams” model in 1973, decorated with a 3 stars pattern on the
peghead. Starting in 1974, the M and N-Line were produced: an open back and a resonator banjo.
This banjo was Derroll Adams’ faithful companion on his numerous trips throughout Europe. His poignant, simple
playing style, his deep warm voice and his wonderful stories made him well-loved in folk circles.
The artist began to record on his Framus banjos (he had received several copies from Framus) in 1974, starting with the "Movin`on" LP.
