Three sister banjos from a larger batch. Mahogany with satin finish was popular this time around. All three of these banjos have wood rim/ ring combos and similar specs. It was fun seeing what customers would come up with to personalize their specs. It’s always interesting to see very similar setups come out with their own little nuances in sound. I’ll have videos up of these three on YouTube soon

All three have identical hardware and Purcell 1941 gym floor bridges.

Stephanie inquired: “ Amigas? How do you know the banjos are female?” Not sure there. Haha

Great looking banjos, Chris. I like the fact that each one has its own character.
How do you know that all banjos are female? Well, they are temperamental, and touchy, and, maybe I'd better stop before I dig the hole too deep. I don't want to sleep on the couch tonight.

Hi Chris are the differences in character due to set up or the unique and undefinable character of the individual banjo?

Paul, each one has very similar setup... I wont say identical but same hardware, heads, strings, tailpiece... necks even cut from same block of wood, and rims from same batch of boards. The hearts and flowers has a rosewood fretboard the other two ebony. I don’t know if I could narrow down exactly why each one sounds different but it’s fun to speculate on.

There is no empirical reason why some banjo sound different than others it just is.

Thanks Bob, that’s our new logo “Cb” for Companion Banjos... Ironically it looks like a C-flat. Haha
