Banjos Direct becomes main UK dealer for handmade high-tech Nechville banjos

Norwich, Norfolk, UK (PRWEB UK) 3 April 2012

Nechville Musical Products, the radically innovative USA banjo manufacturer, has appointed Banjos Direct as its main UK Nechville dealer.

Banjos Direct is the only UK retailer to stock the entire range of ten handmade Nechville Heli-Mount banjo designs which utilise a unique technology developed by the firm’s founder Tom Nechville.

Replacing more than seventy parts of a traditional banjo, the Nechville Heli-Mount body tightens together much like a jar on a lid; greatly reducing the assembly time and improving the banjo’s sound.

Tom Nechville has spent years in development and in consultation with the world’s top players researching and finding ways to improve the design of the classic banjo.

Nechville’s unique approach to banjo design and construction has been enthusiastically accepted by the world’s top players such as Bela Fleck and Alison Brown.

Nechville instruments have appeared on MTV, the Olympics opening ceremonies, CMA Awards show, numerous cable and Direct TV specials and in major live Country, Rock, Jazz and Bluegrass concerts around the planet.

Banjos Direct founder and CEO Simon Middleton commented: “We are enormously proud to be working with Tom Nechville. His instruments are radical and exciting, and hand-built to the very highest standards. They are not only superb sounding and playing instruments for enthusiasts and professionals, but they are also highly collectible.”

“Tom Nechville’s banjos complement the wide range of traditional banjos by GoldTone which are so popular with our customers.”

A number of the Nechville banjos at Banjos Direct are available for immediate delivery, and others are available to order, with a lead time of 45 to 90 days, depending on the particular design.

“Tom Nechville is a small batch producer, a real craftsman, even though his instruments are amazingly high-tech in their construction and some of them very modern in their appearance,” said Simon Middleton.
