More About Me

Nechville started in Tom's home garage shop in the 1980's building and repairing banjos and other stringed instruments. Early prototypes of the Heli-mount banjo were introduced in 1989 and sales have increased steadily since then. The current home of Nechville Musical Products is a 13,000 sq foot industrial / office / retail building located at 9700 Humboldt Ave. S., Bloomington, MN 55431. The latest Nechville expansion was the acquisition of Woodhaven Industries, The nation's top tone ring producer. Now NMP is geared for OEM Tone ring production giving Nechville a firm foothold in the growing banjo market. The goal of Nechville Musical Products is to innovate to meet the changing needs of modern musicians. Reducing nearly seventy parts of a traditional banjo to two has benefited thousands of Heli-Mount players with time saving and purer banjo sound. Tom's electric banjos and pickups continue to find solutions and feed the evolution of the banjo.


Tom I have read with great interest how the Nechville banjo has influenced the music, congratulations. Do you open your facility for a visit? I live in northern Minnesota, currently play a Deering Calico, but have a n interest in the Nechville Phantom. Pete - PeterMac
