  1. 1972 Vega (Vip 5) Banjo

    February 3, 2017

    DSCF3476

    Hi Folks, when we first laid eyes on this little girl, it was hard to believe that she wasn’t built yesterday. There is not a mark or scratch to indicate that this fine example has ever really been handled let alone played. This fine piece of American craftsmanship is full and loud in tone; and at 3.9kg she won’t break your back either.

  2. Tyler Mountain 5 Banjo

    January 16, 2016

    DSCF2318
    The “Tyler Mountain” banjo built in 1975 by The Japanese Company of the same name. I cant say enough about the quality of this big, bold and brassy girl. The brass tone ring is not for the feint of hearted and I think the new owner might have to shove some socks inside her if only to keep the next door neighbours happy…. I’m not kidding

    PS just look at that inlay!

  5. No Name 5 String Banjo c. Early 20’s

    August 30, 2015

    DSCF0924.jpgI was showing a client how readily available antique banjo’s were in the USA…. Too bad for said client… I saw this and hit the “buy it now” box and here she is.

    she required a re-fret, neck re-set and set up. She could be a Slingerland or a Gretsch, as suggested by the quality of the build.

  6. Windsor “Zither” Banjo c.1980’s

    Windsor Zither BanjoWindsor “Zither” Banjo c. 1890’s

    I bought this beauty from a family whose great grandfather had been a vaudevillian back in old blighty. She came complete with original leather case.

    In true British style/engineering prowess the 5th string runs through a tube rather than the American version. Hours of restoration work has revealed a true gem with a unique voice and timbre. If you like open back banjo tone then you’ll love this.
