This post was interesting, Tim Foster went out on a limb and bought a Nechville. Wondering if any of you have had similar experiences and can chime in? All the Best, Tom

I had similar assumptions about the sound. I played one some months back, and absolutely loved the neck and playing it. After watching the setup and ring comparison videos I hoped I we could coax more traditional tone out of it. Mine came with the bronze tone ring, a lighter bridge, and fairly tight head. It has that chime I was looking for, and more low end growl than I expected. I could not be happier with the way it play, sound, or looks.

I've had my Nechville for about 15 years now. I needed to get a professional standard banjo as I was starting to take the banjo seriously and was frustrated with the second hand instrument I'd bought.
I knew I needed to spend some serious money so I also needed to think very carefully about this purchase. I went to festivals and other events and tried as many banjos as I could.
I ended up at Sore Fingers and met Lluis Gomez who was playing a mahogany Nechville Vintage. I tried it and immediately fell in love with it but still needed convincing. That week I had to listen to Noam Pikelny playing a mahogany Nechville Nextar. Bliss! One the world's most awesome banjo pickers playing an awesome banjo.
I fell in love with the musical tones from these instruments and the fabulous playability.
Back at home I found myself dreaming about Nechville banjos. The choice was inevitable.
15 years on, I have never wanted for another banjo. I cannot imagine another banjo that will give me the range of tones and moods I can get from this machine. From sparkly bluegrass to warm subtle tones that you could happily play a lullaby on.
Why would you want to go for just one sound when you can have so many?
Hope this helps, Guy ??
