Visit Tony Trischka School of Banjo


Enter to win a William Boucher 1840 style minstrel banjo from Bell Banjos!

Boucher's revolutionary head tightening device helped bring banjos from the plantation to the stage. The beautiful Victorian style neck and large rim set the standards of the day. Bell Banjos is helping bring this old deep sound back to the American soundscape, and you can win this beauty! It's a virtual time machine that is easy to play but hard to put down.

Specs include a 27" scale and 12 5/8" rim. Brass handmade hardware, goatskin head, smooth friction tuners and a bone nut complement the traditional handrubbed high lustre walnut finish and  deep warm sound of the Aquila Nylgut Minstrel strings.

Visit Bell Banjos and see all the models, and minstrel tambourines, bones, special sized bags, and more.
