Carver Banjos strives to create the best instruments possible for the highest value. This kit tips a hat to the traditional mountain banjo style of Frank Proffitt and other great builders featured in the Foxfire series with a few features that are completely unique and new.

You need no woodworking experience or specialized tools. You’ll be free to enjoy the unique experience of building your own instrument without the worry of costly mistakes. The end result is a fully-playable banjo with a personal connection to you.
