    Gibson (used 1930- '33) Kel Kroyden KK-10 Conversion to 5-string

    Tag No 32-3795 Used
    #ISI-2146, Kel Kroyden tenor banjo converted 5-string, in very good condition with newer TKL hard shell five-string case.

    Kel Kroyden was a subsidiary brand of the Gibson Company.   The model originally came with no tone ring, and also no adjustable truss rod.   However, it is now after-market equipped with a modern 5-string neck with an adjustable rod, and a 1989-1990 Huber 20-hole flathead tone ring.  Kel Kroyden banjos are said to have been produced only between 1930 and 1933 – during the pits of the Great Depression -- and they typically have no serial numbers. They are easily distinguished by having a large “flower” stenciled onto the back of the golden-yellow pearloid (celluloid) resonator.

    Gibson (used, 1930) RB-3 Conv. from TB-3 Flathead Mastertone Banjo

    Tag No 32-3218 Used Hear this instrument in our demonstration video!
    #9259-72, converted to 5-string from tenor banjo by the addition of a newer 5-string neck, in a stained maple finish, and in a newer hard shell plush lined carrying case; with both necks.

    Remember the first time you heard bluegrass banjo and fell in love with the sound.  Then, put on your fingerpicks, friend, because THIS banjo makes THAT VERY sound!    Even the case is special, with that satin top cover, so when you open the case, the initial incongruity of not seeing the instrument is satiated by peeling back the satin with a flourish to the “oohs” and “aahs” of those aficionados around you who exclaim, “Oh wow, an actual Gibson Flathead Mastertone – the rarest of the rare!”

    Chris Pandolfi of The Infamous Stringdusters is one of the bright lights in modern, 3-finger banjo, and his signature model Huber banjo reflects his unique style. It is made with a mahogany neck and resonator, and a mahogany rim as well. Chris feels that this rim offers a mellower tone with a wider dynamic range, even when set up like a typical bluegrass banjo.   Chris says: “The Stringdusters cover a very wide range of musical styles, so I need an instrument that’s very versatile.  This banjo does it all.”

    Tag No 32-3350 New
    #6952, resonator bluegrass 5-string banjo, with the famous Tony Pass 600TS Old Wood Rim, curly maple stained in the Cremona sunburst fashion.

    By slightly modifying and adding to the Bellflower inlay pattern, and making the neck and resonator out of curly maple instead of walnut, we've created the Sunflower. The shaded, Cremona style "sunburst" staining on this model is very popular and highlights the quality of the wood used.  Includes a Tony Pass 600TS Old Wood Rim and a deluxe TKL emerald green crushed velvet plush lined case.

    Stelling (new) Red Fox with Old Wood Rim

    Tag No 32-3714 New
    #6986, red stained curly maple, nickel plating, with the Tony Pass Old Wood rim, with plush lined hard shell case.

    One of Stelling’s more recently introduced models, inspired by master banjoist Bill Emerson, the Red Fox has outsold every other model since its introduction in 1996. Although new models tend to do that, Stelling thinks that this model will join the Staghorn in the banjo hit parade because of its universal appeal and acceptance as a classic banjo design. The fancy curly maple used in this model is enhanced by its reddish stain. The many-colored Red Fox in the peghead and the abalone maple leaves in the fingerboard help to make this striking and seductive.
