About Stelling: Since 1959, while still in high school, Geoff Stelling has been either playing the banjo or trying to improve on its design. Stelling Banjo Works was established in 1974 while Geoff was stationed at a Naval Base in San Diego. As a semi-professional banjo and bass player in various bluegrass bands since the mid-60's, Geoff developed an ear for banjo tone and experimented with the mechanics of banjo construction until he patented a revolutionary design that his banjos are famous for today: the wedge-fitted pot assembly.

About Nechville: Tom Nechville is always innovating to meet the changing needs of modern musicians. Replacing more than seventy parts of a traditional banjo, the Nechville patented Heli-Mount system tightens together much like a jar on a lid; greatly reducing the assembly time and improving the banjo's sound. Tom Nechville has spent years in development and in consultation with the world's top players researching and finding ways to meet the needs of professionals. The result is a state-of-the-art instrument with modern styling and traditional in sound.

Bishline Vega
About Bishline: Manufactured in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Bishline Banjos earned respect from the first showing at IBMA in Nashville in 2003.

His banjos are top quality, professional-grade in every way. Affordable to the player who wants to upgrade from a beginner model, and coveted by the seasoned pros.
About Vega (a Deering brand): Vega banjos were first introduced early in the 20th century, and they're still quite popular today.
