Spring is finally here - and at Nechville, new ideas are blossoming! The Banjo Revolution has just introduced a innovative program for the specific benefit of working musicians while continuing to expand popular awareness of the ever more desirable sound of the banjo.
In the current world of banjo, there are many fine instruments but not too many real choices. Most other banjo companies stopped with the near century old designs that still dominate the traditional market. Current music is now quite friendly to the inclusion of banjo sounds, and the road is wide open for a bold emergence of new banjo sounds. Thanks to the many true alternatives making their way out of the Nechville banjo labs, you'll be able to meet your needs in terms of perfect tone, ultimate comfort and light weight.
We have begun to build a network of associates to stage test the next generation of prototypes emerging from the Nechville labs. The Banjo Revolution Network <http://www.banjorev.com> allows you membership in an exclusive group of adventurous musicians! As a teaching pro, store owner, or certified banjo authority, you may be eligible as a Banjo Revolution Associate whereby you can purchase new technology without risk while fostering the evolution of new banjo designs! We ask for your report on the success or failure of new ideas, while we continue the quest for your ultimate banjo. Other players and interested persons can also participate in the Revolution by working through one of our trained Banjo Revolution Associates. Tom Nechville is available to discuss bringing the newest custom options directly to you at special associate level prices.
Those interested in ideas for a custom build banjo should visit Banjorev.com and submit their ideas to one of the Banjo Revolution associates listed.
Working with the Banjo Revolution team is the most efficient way to address special needs and custom solutions to unique banjo problems. Our Banjo Revolution web site highlights choices that cannot be found anywhere else.
Nechville continues to expand its presence in the marketplace by supporting select dealers with several tried and tested models. Dealers will also benefit from the Banjo Revolution as Nechville awareness grows through our worldwide network of banjo professionals and new products are thoroughly tested before they reach the stores.
In our quest for great sound and perfect function, we have begun to incorporate rolling rims into many of our standard model banjos. Our popular "Cyclotronic" tone ring contains bearings, or "tone spheres," inside the tone ring which allows easy tightening of the Helimount head. This mounts the tone ring in a non-dampened way, allowing for maximum resonance and beauty of tone. We have recently discovered that a variety of other ball materials also work well in the Cyclotronic design - as well as reduce banjo weight.
Nechville's series of light weight prototypes feature "Open Architecture" construction. Special tone rings, "tone spheres" and new rims of various materials combine in infinite potentials for the discerning ear. Nechville has also pioneered Hybrid banjos that incorporate traditional pots with Nechville's famous adjustable necks.
Anyone interested in the best choice for a tried and tested contemporary banjo can visit our dealers for a standard or custom Nechville creation. The Banjo Revolution research process is far too complex to be carried out in the traditional way through music stores. Therefore, Open Architecture designs and Hybrid banjos are only offered through Banjorev.com.

Great idea, Tom! I think you are the most inventive and creative banjo maker around, and have the first real innovations since Gibson in the 1920s. Keep up the good work!
My Nextar is still going strong, and the "Banjo Camp!" book by Gene Senyak to be published in late 2008 (by a subsidiary of Barnes and Noble) will have a photo of me with the Nextar in my chapter .
