The Music City Belle
The Music City Belle is the most popular model we build. The smaller 10-inch rim and 23.5-inch scale make it a pure delight to hold and play. Perfect for quiet porches, small family gatherings, or just curling up on the couch with a familiar song. A favorite of musicians schooled on other instruments who want to enjoy their banjo, not wrestle with it. The Belle also makes a wonderful personalized gift.
Comparable to its unique smaller size, the Music City Belle responds best to a light touch. Tuned one-step higher than a traditional open back banjo, the tone is clear and responsive, but also exhibits a mellow edge particularly when paired with a natural goat-skin head and Nylgut strings.
A number of options are available to help make your banjo unique.
