I love the banjo by Nate. It’s beautifully made and with such a nice old timey twang. Highly recommended!

I couldn't be happier with this mountain banjo from Nate. Not only did Nate take the time to answer all my questions and customize it to my specs, his work is impeccable. It plays beautifully and the fit and finish is clean as a whistle. And bonus...it sounds exactly right. An amazing custom-built banjo at an affordable price!

Just arrived via fed-ex. It’s a perfect mountain frailer. Friction pegs are easy to tune. Sounds awesome (the strings are still stretching abit but that’s to be expected). It is a great sounding instrument.

This stunning piece is well worth its rarity. It is a great conversation piece to teach people above the African-American and Southern roots and the modern effort by Nate and others to recreate this antebellum instrument. The gourd banjo has a deeper, mysterious, and softer sound than the modern version. Slides are gentle without the frets and the large gourd captures nice tones. All the woodwork is really perfect. I have been playing it for over 6 months and really adore the kinds of rich, smooth, and grounding sounds. This banjo has inspired me to learn about other beautiful west African instruments, the Kora, the Ngoni, the Akonting. Preferred tuning is a step down (fCFAC) with the nylon strings, but the tuning is versatile to modern. Nate is a great caretaker to make sure it came up the road safely.

Banjo arrived carefully packed and set up. All tuned up now, and it plays wonderfully! Very excited to sink some hours into this instrument.
