Hartel  Boucher Banjo Maple, 2008

This Hartel Boucher banjo dates to 2008 and is in very good condition. It features a solid Maple neck with the distinctive Boucher headstock, and what look just like Ebony friction pegs but are in fact excellent PegHed geared tuners.    The 12 inch pot has six cast brass Boucher style brackets, and an Ebony tailpiece. This is a fretless instrument, so the precise scale length varies with bridge placement.

Deering Goodtime Artisan Americana

Deering Goodtime Artisan Americana

The Deering Goodtime Artisan Americana features a 12” rim, which gives the banjo a stronger bass response and a much warmer open back banjo tone. Played with an old time style technique, the Goodtime Artisan Americana is reminiscent of banjos from a period when larger rims were more prevalent which makes the 12” a great setup for playing old time music.
