Trelawny Resonator Banjos

For the ultimate Bluegrass sound a resonator banjo is essential. Originally developed during the Trad Jazz era, the resonator is designed to reflect the sound back out towards the listener, adding volume and punch. All our resonator banjos are made from grade one selected sycamore with an ebony fingerboard and headstock overlay with hand cut position markers and inlay designs. The traditional three ply steam bent rims are also manufactured in house from selected sycamore and turned to accommodate our Whitechapel Tone Rings. Twin coordinator rods and a dual action truss rod are used for maximum stability and neck alignment. Geared tuners and a 24 hook tension ring are used as standard. We are happy to discuss or offer advice on any aspect should you wish to customise.
