Black Walnut Minstrel Banjo


This is a simple and classic minstrel banjo designed with the clawhammer player in mind. Lightweight yet maintains a punchy tone.
I developed a special process to add pigment to the goat skin head. The lacquer finished neck feels silky smooth in hand. It was a pleasure to build and play this beautiful instrument- make it yours today.
