Beautiful, local cherry, seasoned 15 years. Cherry has and very substantial feeling in the hands. The tone is very firm and focused yet soft and pleasant. Hookless rim, fully adjustable calfskin head. It's very comfortable to play, being smooth and lightweight. The weight difference shocks everyone. Feels like a toy and it should! This one is available at.

Ladies and gentlemen, I'll be starting full time next week!!! It's been a long road to get here... I'm very much looking forward to giving this endeavor my full attention!! It's been quite a struggle to do this part time.. Thanks to everyone here for your support and appreciation for my work. I can't thank y'all enough! The current wait is around 6 months on custom orders, please contact me to get on the list. Thanks!
Hookless rim in beautiful cherry. My inspiration to make these was to have a light weight minstrel banjo but with a adjustable head. It works so well! The brass screws are threaded into brass inserts in the rim so it will last forever and easy to adjust. I'm in love with this design! Still accepting orders for 2018, contact me to make one for you! https://www.carolinabanjoco.com
Heel and scoop carving from my current build. Cherry has such nice color, it will naturally become darker in a short time. Beautiful! Let me design one for you in 2018. Busy year! https://www.carolinabanjoco.com
The #banjototw this week is Shove That Pigs Foot a Little Further in the Fire, chosen by @waxwingbanjoslo! It’s the real name of Ruby with the Eyes that Sparkle. I usually play this tune in open D (f# DF# AD) but I tried something different and did it in gCGCE, which is open C, but not the open D tuning a step down, so the positions are different. It’s a great tune and a solid choice for a tune of the week! @jdwilkes @d.cassells @zacpelo @cwdeanbanjos @cumberland_banjos @seedersinstruments @mirandaceara @squirrelbanjo and all the rest of us. #banjo#banjototw#clawhammerbanjo#oldtimebanjo#oldtimemusic
Hand carved headstock from current build. Enchanting as music itself. I really love pairing artwork with a instrument used to create art! Hopefully it'll inspire countless songs for the centuries to come. It'll be a magical vestige from another time at some point. Art is long, right? 😀
It's almost done! It's been a long build.. Beautiful local cherry and rich carvings, rosewood trim. Hookless tension rim. The customer plays nylgut so that's what the setup will be. Beautiful Banjo! Contact me to order yours! https://www.carolinabanjoco.com
Frailing scoop detail from current build. It's all coming together nicely! I'll be introducing more and more carvings to choose from. They are a nice detail to add. I'm still filling out orders for 2018, it's hard to predict when I'll be booked up for the year but I'm doing my best to fit everyone in! Thanks for all the support! https://www.carolinabanjoco.com
If you’re looking for something good to listen to, check out Osey and Ernest Helton. They were traditional musicians from the Asheville NC area who were recorded in the mid 1920s commercially and for the Library of Congress by the Lomax’s. #oldtimefiddle#oldtimebanjo https://youtu.be/MxEBudNViE4

Scrolled carving in local cherry wood, aged 15 years. Hookless rim yet fully adjustable calfskin head. Comfortable and very light weight. It's a pleasure to look at but an even greater pleasure to play! It weighs about half of a metal hardware banjo. Taking orders for 2018, the list is filling up so contact me soon! https://www.carolinabanjoco.com
