Here's a complimentary write-up from Bernunzio's on a banjo built by BHO member Zach Hoyt that Bernunzio's currently has listed for sale. I figured you folks would enjoy reading it.

All my open backs were made by Zach. There's even been a couple odder ones he's done for me. I love the feel of his necks. What I find most remarkable though is that none of his banjos are the same, and yet they are all self-evidently his builds. There's no mistaking them.

And way under priced!

My wife and I have been fortunate to have Zach build several instruments for us, including an oddball “washtub” bass, and a bass marimbula. In each instance, the work has been impeccable, the interactions all enjoyable , and the completions finished when promised, at a more than reasonable price point. It’s been a joy to work with him.

Zack, Ken LeVan, Verne Marr, and countless other banjo builders really are amazing for their quality and affordable rates! I checked Zach's website out a while back, and while I cannot afford any of his banjos (even though they are at good rates), they really do seem like good quality.

Hi Nic,

Thank you for your kind reach-out! I really have to get out with my family to see the west part of the state! I have never really explored west past State-College, but PA really is a beautiful state. I am trying to build my own long-neck banjo from materials on hand, so I hope it turns out well like your banjos, LeVan, Verne Marr's, Zack's, or anyone else hand-crafted banjos!
