Nechville gears up for the future

Thanks to banjo-innovation wizard and luthier Tom Nechville, designer of the Heli-Mount banjo pot system, for news of recent achievements at Nechville Musical Products (NMP), Minnesota, USA. A frequent visitor to European festivals and banjo events, including the Johnny Keenan Banjo Festival, Tom writes:

Nechville has many strong international friendships, and with my passion for building inspirational banjos, I'm working toward seeing the banjo flourish around the world. [...] As a lifetime player and builder, I've never been happier with the sound, appearance, comfort, playability, and wide range of selection that we can now offer. In short, our thirty-year quest for better banjos might be called a tireless passion for achieving the sound that players want.

NMP recently acquired the USA's top tone-ring producer, giving the expanded company state-of-the-art facilities and expertise for producing the world's best precision tone rings. With this expansion, Tom can offer virtually any custom combination, both in his own Heli-Mount banjos, and in those with traditional-style pots. More details are on the European Bluegrass Blog, the NMP website, the NMP blog, and Tom's Banjo Hangout blog.

Tom also has this invitation for banjo-pickers who are forward-thinking and open to ideas: 'Nechville is eager to build the instrument you've been dreaming about.'
