For Sale: For sale- Carolina Banjo Company, Handcrafted Walnut Banjo- $3,400 USD






Please visit my website for more pics and many sound clips. Link is down below. Check out the other banjos too!

Walnut with ebony fretboard, heel cap, both rim caps. Beautiful walnut burl veneers on headstock front and back with a nice old indian head penny from 1888 inlayed.
Brass tuners and no knot tailpiece. Thin brass tone ring that gives the tone a little pop without being too bright or ringy.

Most banjos are best suited for only one type of string, either steel or nylon/gut but the "no bolt'' banjo sounds great with any string. They are well balanced across the strings and speak equally well up the neck.

You can listen to the sound clips and judge for yourself and pick the tone you like best! All recordings are made in the same spot, same settings so the comparison is accurate.
​Segmented walnut rim with thick veneer around. Ebony fretboard, heel cap, rim cap and tension hoop cap. Traditional dowel stick construction held tight with a tapered ebony key. Floating fifth string nut can be moved to any position.
Brass position markers on fretboard front and side.

​ Can be strung with steel, nylon or gut strings with two different nuts, one of bone for steel strings and one of ebony for nylon or gut strings as they require a higher action to avoid buzzing.
It plays as good as it looks, 25 1/2 scale length for easy reaches, 1 5/16 wide at nut, gentle V neck profile makes the neck very comfortable and all my necks have a special finish to make them feel smooth and buttery for easy sliding.

My homemade varnish is made of natural resins and looks/ feels much better than all modern varnishes.
Calfskin head, nautical star carving on the frailing scoop.

​Entirely handmade and lacking the sterile perfection of factory instruments, thank goodness!!!
