❌SOLD❌ Stelling Bellflower 5-String Banjo, 2012


Instrument Categories: ,

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.

Stelling engineered their own unique heavy centrifugal cast bronze flange and machined tailpiece to create THE classic Stelling banjo sound.

This lovely, all original and excellent condition Stelling Bellflower 5-String Banjo, built during 2012 at the Stelling shop in Afton, Virginia. There is almost no wear on this instrument, and it is set up well.

The original hard shell case is included.

Here is Geoff Stelling on the Stelling Bellflower 5-String Banjo:

“The Bellflower – Made of Virginia Black Walnut, the Bellflower boasts the natural beauty of unstained wood. A simple, yet elegant floral inlay pattern, combined with tasteful ivoroid/black/ivoroid binding on the neck and resonator make the Bellflower the choice of many.”
