The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Huber Roanoke Truetone 5-String Banjo Black Walnut, 2005

Brand:

Instrument Categories:

This 2005 Huber Roanoke TrueTone 5-String banjo is in very good, clean condition and features Black Walnut construction with a Maple rim and Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. It also has a capo tacks, Snuffy Smith bridge and two Keith D-Tuners.

We seldom see these top quality, hand built Huber Roanoke banjos for sale. This example is in overall very good condition but has been played often enough for the finish to be worn through on the neck in two areas and there is light buckle rash on the resonator, and light to moderate fret wear in the low positions. A leather strap is installed and included!

Sold with a recent and excellent condition TKL hard shell case, black with maroon lining.

Here’s the builder on the Huber Roanoke 5-string banjo:

“The Huber Roanoke combines a slightly more ornate peghead overlay with the rich color of walnut and the simplicity of a nickel-plated banjo. The striking, figured walnut resonator with its contrasting inlaid wood rings makes for an instrument that is as much a treat for the eyes as it is the ears.

The walnut neck imparts a sweet tone with a clarity which only walnut can give. Both the neck and the resonator are stained with a natural walnut finish and bound in white/black/white. The neck is inlaid with the original Huber pattern and the pot is built using the Huber Engineered rim and the Huber HR-30 tone ring.”
