Based on classic 1930s, pre-WW2 banjo designs, the Huber VRB4 delivers great tone and looks with modern reliability. It features walnut construction, a HR-30 tone ring and Huber Engineered rim.

Deering Vega Old Tyme Wonder Open Back Banjo

Deering Vega Old Tyme Wonder Open Back Banjo

The Deering Vega Old Tyme Wonder is built for Clawhammer banjoists who prefer a scooped neck to ease plucking their banjos over the fingerboard. This traditional open back banjo is available with an 11 or 12 inch rim. The 12 inch rim provides a warmer, thicker ‘Old Tyme’ sound. Deering builds in a traditional ‘frailing scoop’ that allows more room for the fingers and thumb of the right hand to pluck the strings over the fingerboard.

Steve Huber Banjos: The Lexington Model

Steve Huber Banjos: The Lexington Model

The Huber tone ring is an exact replica of the great “pre war” rings that were used in the classic flathead banjos of the 1930’s. Not close, not similar… an exact replica! Steve has duplicated the alloy and the hardness of the metal, producing a ring with the same sonic qualities that are found in the rings of vintage banjos selling for ten times the cost of a new Huber.

Steve Huber Kalamazoo Banjo

Steve Huber Banjos represent the very finest in modern banjo construction – but designed and manufactured to a higher standard: the classic flathead banjos of the 1930s! Many banjo makers will hint that some aspects of their instruments can be compared to these legendary pre wars. Steve Huber goes several steps further.

Steve Huber Lancaster Model Banjo

Steve Huber Lancaster Model Banjo

Emulating the sound of a prewar Gibson flathead tone ring might sound like an easy proposition to those unfamiliar with the processes involved, but those in the know will tell you that it is a difficult task indeed, something close to discovering the Holy Grail of bluegrass. For this reason, it is all the more noteworthy that in the several months since its release, praise for the Huber Vintage Flathead ring has been unanimously enthusiastic. While many of us know Steve as a formidable bluegrass banjo player with an innovative traditional bent, his destiny as a tone ring developer par excellence now seems almost inevitable.
