Heli-Mount Design

A Revolutionary Idea

Heli-Mount frame

Nechville banjos are the only banjos in the world to use a simple two component head tightening system.

Imagine screwing a cap on a jar. This simple approach tightens the head with perfectly even tension.

The result: unprecedented musical body and depth. Plus it makes Nechville banjos much easier to setup and customize.

Hear Tom Nechville recall the Heli-Mount invention:

Reimagined Necks

Nechville Banjo Neck

The Nechville standard is a wider, more comfortable neck. Many of our models include a 7-12" compound radius, reducing fatigue and improving accuracy.

Combine that with wider, longer lasting frets and you have a banjo neck that feels and plays like an electric guitar.

The neck on this thing is literally faster than my custom shop Stratocaster." -Steve M. from Maryland

Nechville has the most comfortable playing neck in the industry and great customer service." -Paul S. from Lakeland, MN

It is hard to go back and play other banjos. This banjo will step up your drive to learn and excel on the instrument. I really think this is the best banjo on the planet." -Tony B. on Banjohangout.org

Timber-Tronic Wood Ring

Why Weight?

Our wood ring projects a great bluegrass sound. It weights just a few ounces.

It mates perfectly with our Cyclotronic rim and ball bearing system. This allows you to switch between bronze and wood rings in minutes, whatever the situation calls for.

Once installed, it brings the total banjo weight down to eight pounds or less, saving your back while providing incredible sound.
