I will make almost any kind or size, within reason, including reproductions or conjectural versions of historic styles, made with modern materials. Once you commission me, it’s your banjo.  I make my own parts, I am not tied to convention.

I make banjos for bluegrass, frailing / clawhammer, and fingerpicking styles. Many are “all-purpose” in that  they can be made with easily removable resonator / flange assemblies, making a quick, clean switch from a resonator to openback, giving them the versatility to play a wide variety of musical styles.
