Stelling Banjos

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 with a unique approach to tone ring to rim construction that ensures maximum ring to rim contact for full tonal transmission. Stelling also engineered their own unique heavy centrifugal cast bronze flange and machined tailpiece to create THE classic Stelling banjo sound.

2010 Kanilea Custom Tenor Ukulele  SOLD

This 2010 Kanilea Custom Tenor Ukulele might be the best-sounding uke I’ve ever played. Of course it’s comfortable to play and has a good action, but the tone is outstanding, with a rich fullness and great harmonic overtones, excellent separation between notes, and very good sustain.
