Bart Reiter builds beautiful handmade banjos in East Lansing, Michigan, and is celebrated for his take on the traditional instrument. Reiter’s instruments have been in the hands of everyone from beginners to professional touring artists, and for good reason. They’re crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail. 

This banjo is full of traditional charm, and has the tone of a 100 year old instrument. The 11-inch maple rim offers a bright, punchy tone straight out of the Anthology of American Folk Music. The Tubaphone tone-ring offers plenty of volume.
