Featured Banjos

Banjo 259 (Aurora)

banjo_fb_259

Aurora is an amazing banjo in tone, good looks, and playability. A 13 inch pot fully loaded with most all of our innovative options, you will find them below. Aurora is an oak banjo that has a classic woody tone, coming from an ancient oak tree that died of old age in our forest, perhaps 30-40 years ago—curing perfectly!

Banjo 261 (Ella)

Ella is a 10 inch soprano with an abundance of “class.” She is fully equipped with many of the same amazing options as our larger banjos, a gorgeous cocobolo fretboard, scalloped and radiused, a beautiful skin, scoop, “chambertone” tone ring. She is a beauty from every angle.
