BLUEGRASS

WILDWOOD BLUEGRASS BANJOS deliver a clear powerful sound with style and character. Our 87% bronze alloy “flat head” style tone ring produces a powerful vintage sound, with that classic balance of bass and treble ranges while maintaining volume and clarity. All models have a one piece cast resonator flange, fancy curly maple or American black walnut necks inlaid with mother of pearl and abalone shell, binding and purfling, and fancy figured matching resonators. Serious hard driving banjo workhorses designed to make serious bluegrass music.  There are three models to the Bluegrass line. As with all Wildwood Banjos each successive model has fancier figured woods for neck and resonators, and more intricate inlay patterns. There is no room for compromise when it comes to playability and sound—but you should have a choice as to how your instrument looks.
