Nechville Atlas Banjo

The Nechville Atlas is hybrid banjo with a unique pot and Nechvilles patent pending adjustable neck design. The Walnut block-rim construction and wooden flange give this banjo a earthy appearance and smooth ergonomic feel. The Nechville fraling thumb scoop allows players to double thumb in that sweet spot without losing the top frets common with a typical scoop. The Cocobolo tone ring has a similar mass to a light weight metal tone ring providing similar sustain with a much warmer timbre. This instrument has the full fat sound of a 12″ pot with added clarity providing great depth, resonance and sustain. The Saturn and Stars inlay and hand rubbed oil finish complete this great looking and sounding banjo!

Vega Tu-ba-phone No.9 Tenor Banjo 1928 (Consignment) SOLD

around 1909.   The Tu-ba-phone tone ring has a square crossection with holes perforated on its inner surface and is considered to this day,  one of the finest tone rings for both tenor and 5-string frailing banjos!   This particular tenor is a No. 9 model with intricately engraved mother-of-pearl inlays and a highly detailed neck-heel carving!  These Tu-ba-phone No. 9 banjos are not only sought after as tenors,  but are highly valued as potential conversions to 5-string claw-hammer instruments!
