Is there room in your heart for the Cello banjo? Let's listen to your heart with a stethoscope and we'll find out.

Excellent playing Paul!

I thought the original poster had maybe posed a trick question, especially having listened to you and others playing a cello banjo over the years.

Here’s a couple of cello banjo makers that haven’t been mentioned in the thread yet.

First is Brian Carver. His is tackhead style on a 12” rim, and actually has 6 strings instead of 5, so you can tune it gADGBD or whatever variation sounds fun. I spoke with him yesterday, and he said it might be 2-3 months before he has any more cello banjos available (I had broached the idea of having him build me a custom cello/tenor hybrid that would be tuned CGDAE).

Second is Zach Hoyt. His are a bit unusual in that they use a 16” rim, much bigger than what anyone else is doing. He also uses a scale length of 29” rather than than the 24.5” scale the other makers are using. No financial interest, but the one in the link below is still available to buy, if it strikes anyone’s fancy.
