Peter and I have been working on this banjo to get everything right. We have built this banjo with all the things we like in banjos. Such as Block rims, beautiful curly maple woods, Slim necks, Mother of pearl inlays, ebony fretboards, Waverly V2 tuners, kerschner tailpieces, vintage style nickle hardware and Vintage Huber longshirt tone ring.
Set up with medium low action which in our option makes it fast to play, allows great tone all over the neck and great for hammer ons and pull offs. We have Huber medium gauge strings and bridges which Jim at Huber banjos suggested for their tonerings. The player can make their own choice later down the track.
We are very happy with the sound, playability and quality. This banjo is everything we expexted it to be. We are proud and confident this model will sell. At $4500 Aust. this is the only banjo in Australia we know of that uses all American maple woods and vintage Huber parts with a rock maple block rim.
If you are in Australia and looking for a custom banjo please email Banjobrothers@hotmail.com
We can also build anything to your specs if you have your own ideas and preferences.
