Stelling Bellflower Banjo

Stelling Bellflower Banjo

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.

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 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.

Deering Sierra Tenor Banjo

Deering Sierra Tenor Banjo

So why is the Deering Sierra Tenor Banjo the most popular tenor banjo in the Deering line? Greg Deering says it best … “No one can buy a better banjo! They could buy a fancier one but not a better one.  Irish Tenor banjos have the shorter 17 fret neck for a brighter, snappier sound. The Sierra 17-fret tenor has our professional -06- bronze tone ring and you get all the most important features that affect the tone and playability at an economical price.
