Stelling Golden Cross Gospel Banjo, 1978

Stelling Golden Cross Gospel Banjo, 1978

Here we have a Stelling Golden Cross Gospel banjo, built of Black Walnut during 1978 in Afton, Virginia with a raised, rather than inlaid, rear cross. One other Gospel model like this is known to have been built for Ralph Stanley with the serial number 428.  The current Golden Cross models do not have the rear cross.  The Stelling Golden Cross Gospel is based closely on the stock Golden Cross, with the primary difference being the headstock inlays.

❌SOLD❌  Stelling Bellflower 5-String Banjo, 2012

The Stelling Bellflower 5-String Banjo is the basis of the Stelling Sunflower Banjo, and features Virginia Black Walnut construction to the Sunflower’s flame maple. This provides a somewhat warmer, rounder tone.   The Bellflower consistently gets rave reviews from its owners.  Stelling established themselves as a benchmark in modern banjo construction with a unique approach to tone ring to rim construction that ensures maximum ring to rim contact for full tonal transmission.

Here we have another superb example of Geoff Stelling’s craftsmanship – the Stelling Bellflower banjo.

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 zinc flange and machined tailpiece to create THE classic Stelling banjo sound.
