Seeders Custom 11" (2015)

Photo for Ad 126004

Highly sought-after pre-owned banjo from Vermont-based luthier, Will Seeders! If you follow our website, you know how quickly Will's banjos tend to sell; and they hardly ever become available on the secondary market. This 2015 custom (they're all custom, really) is, essentially, an 11" tubaphone in birdseye maple fitted with a John Balch skin head (though the rim features some very cool construction techniques -- you can read more about it on Will's website if you're in the mood to do a deep dive). This banjo is in mint condition, and priced with its original hard case. It likely goes without saying, but if you're a fan of the Grateful Dead, this is the banjo for you!

Great Lefty Pisgah Rambler With Dobson Tone Ring

Photo for Ad 125870

I'm selling this wonderful Rambler by North Carolina's Pisgah Banjos. It has a walnut neck with a Dobson heel, richlite fingerboard, a brass Dobson tone ring, a stainless steel spunover rim, aged brass hardware, and a custom dyed calfskin head. This banjo sings. Comes with a TKL hardcase. It works well for clawhammer or old-time fingerpicking. I never thought I'd sell it, but graduate school changed my mind. I think they're over 1,400 new, excluding the case.

1,100 OBO. Buyer pays shipping. Local pickup preferred. Reply for more pictures.

£650 FIRM PRICE. Postage at cost, probably £15 and would be very well wrapped.

inspection welcome at Cramlingtn, Northumberland.

Here's a real sweetheart with all the wonderful tone of a spun-over rim early 20th Century instrument.

Made by Slingerland for the Sears & Roebuck mail order catalog, this 24 bracket open back has the true traditional tone players are looking for.

Set up to play clawhammer style, in excellent condition, with a slight amount of wear in the finish on the back of the neck near the 5th string peg.

You can really "ring de banjar" with this beauty.

$400  case extra.

1924 Gibson TB-3 Trapdoor Tenor Banjo

Photo for Ad 125546

The particulars are:

Ebony board with pearl dots and 19” scale length; frets are in good shape (I think the short scale is great for mandolinists who want to be able to comfortably try their hands at tenor without having to stretch too much)

One piece maple neck is straight and in great shape; action set up at the 12th fret at 5/64” treble side 7/64” bass side.

New 10.5 inch Remo Renaissance head sounds great on it. Tube and ball bearing tone ring (the non-spring loaded variant)

Trap door resonator in working condition (though the hinges have been replaced). Early dual coordinator rod neck attachment.

Original 2-on-a-plate Waverly geared guitar-style tuners in working condition; "The Gibson" pearl headstock inlay in slipper style headstock.

FON 11012A -17

Now the flaws: Some finish damage and ply rippling to the back of the trapdoor resonator; replacement trapdoor hinges; missing original tailpiece cover and armrest (and likely pickguard that these usually came with).

Original Hunleth semi-soft case is in pretty rough condition with a fair amount of deterioration at the bottom; good for storage, but a bit dicey for any substantial out-and-about use.

Check out the link above for more photos and a video sound sample with both the trap door open and closed; I think it’s got a great even tone without the overpowering crack that you get from a lot of heavier banjos, while being much more clear / refined (and less thuddy) than most other banjos in this price range. The trapdoor design is great for keeping that tenor banjo tone while also not swamping out a quieter ensemble, while still being able to pop open the resonator when you need to be heard.

Hey, a great playing Loar-era Gibson anything for under $600 is a steal!

I'm asking $490+shipping, Paypal preferred.

48 hour approval period with full refund (minus shipping) if you aren't happy with it.

Weymann Orchestra A Tenor (Pro Setup- Excellent Condition)

Weymann Orchestra A Tenor (Pro Setup- Excellent Condition)

This banjo is one of the Weymann Orchestra models with the megaphonic rim, decorative flanges, arch top tone ring, and pop-on resonator. Extremely light for a resonator archtop banjo.

Extremely awesome condition. Headstock looks crazy good. A few scuffs on the rim under the resonator that are hidden when the resonator is on. Set up for Irish professionally by the lads at Bernunzio Music and equipped with a frosted head.

Recently I came into possession of Clareen. This sounds comparable to less than third of the price. Vintage gets you way more bang for your buck, but you have to worry about setup and condition. This thing has been inspected, cleaned, and prepared by the best tenor banjo shop in the US.

Same internals and construction methods as higher end Weymann orchestras, pretty sure the only differences are wood choice and inlays, etc. This one is mahogany, which does a nice job of calming down the archtop tone ring a bit.

Weymann Orchestra model A’s are probably the best bang for buck tenor out there in my opinion. Several great Irish tenor makers use the Weymann design as well for its depth and projection (see JP banjos- he’s an engineer who got into Irish banjo making and after testing out many construction methods, chose the Weymann Orchestra style sans resonator).

Below is a clip of the instrument in action:

1926 Gibson Style 3 Conversion Reduced $1999

Photo for Ad 125477

1926 Gibson style 3 conversion. This banjo began life as a GB-3, and years ago was converted to a 5 string. Ball Bearing arched top tonering, 2 piece flange, mahogany resonator. The pot is original except for the tailpiece and armrest, and possibly the hooks. The neck is a 70s Gibson RB-250 neck. This banjo sells for $3500 however the neck has a repaired and stable headstock break so I've discounted $1500 which will buy a really nice neck AND keep a few hundred in your pocket. You'll own a Gibson Prewar Mastertone banjo for less that $3000! Don't miss this opportunity!! Here's a video of the banjo: m.youtube.com/watch?v=xwsdZju5Nno
