Standard Model Ordering Info

Although each of these models has a distinctive tone, they are all well balanced, and fall somewhere in the middle of the tonal spectrum.  However, I've decided to offer a few limited customizations to them so that you can create a banjo with a sound that will exactly fit your needs.  Please note that the tone descriptions apply to the specs shown, and will differ once customized...I'll be happy to help you customize any of these models to get the tone you are after.


Although tone and playability are the most important aspects of a banjo, I feel its looks are also important, so am offering the option of a simple heel inlay so you can further customize your banjo. 


If you would like to order one of these banjos just contact me.  Sound clips of each model will be coming soon.
