|Comments|| Just in, a new Stelling Bellflower banjo! Here we have another superb example of Geoff Stelling’s craftsmanship.
Based on the very successful Stelling Bellflower Banjo , the Stelling Sunflower banjo features AAA-grade flame maple construction rather than Virginia Black Walnut; this provides a somewhat brighter tone with a more defined attack. The shaded ‘Cremona’ style sunburst finish pairs very well with the flamed maple.
We were thrilled to renew our dealership with Stelling and now carry three models as standard stocking representation of these fine banjos.
Stelling established themselves as a benchmark in modern banjo construction; a unique approach to tone ring to rim construction that ensures maximum ring to rim contact for full tonal transmission.
Stelling engineered their own uinique heavy centrifugal cast bronze flange and machined tailpiece to create THE classic Stelling banjo sound.
