Every aspect of a Nechville banjo has been designed for acoustic superiority, convenience, comfort and aesthetics. You’ll benefit from the finely crafted details and artistic approach that goes into all Nechville instruments, and you’ll have plenty of reasons for pride when owning a Classic.
When you pick up a Nechville Classic, you will be immediately struck by a sensation of high quality. You’ll wonder why your left hand slides so smoothly and effortlessly over the ebony and fancy maple neck on the Classic. You’ll notice that the wide polished frets are smooth and comfortable to the touch. You’ll discover that the silky smooth and durable Nechville finish makes your left hand slide faster. You’ll especially be pleased next time you bring your banjo in from the cold, because the finish on the Classic WILL NOT CRACK like traditional Lacquer finishes.
The carefully crafted 7 to 12″ compound radius of the fretboard surface helps with noting the accuracy and clarity of tone. This neck’s shape gives you the slimmest feel with maximum structural integrity for strength of tone. Not only is it easier to form chords and left hand positions, but you’ll get clean distinctive and full bodied musical notes without buzzing or other sonic interference common in traditional banjos. The Classic’s slightly wider profile gives you plenty of room for chokes and slides while the fat frets form a secure foundation for the string’s anchor point on the fretboard, translating into incredible musical power from every note and frets the last twice as long before needing a fret job.
In Nechville’s quest for uncommonly great sound and function, we have incorporated the time tested combination of a bell bronze pre-war style tone ring and 3 ply hard rock maple steam bent rim. In order to coax every bit of tone from Nechville’s own proprietary ring. Nechville machines the rim to acoustically superior dimensions and caps it with a stainless steel mounting ring. Unique “Cyclotronic tone spheres,” roll on top of this ring under the tone ring to allow easy tightening of the Heli-Mount head. Plus it mounts the tone ring in a non-dampened way, allowing for unrestricted resonance and beauty of tone.
You can be confident that Nechville has paid attention to even the smallest details. Every part of the Nechville has been designed for acoustical superiority, convenience, comfort and versatility. For example, you’ll benefit from the adjustable radiused neck attachment. It is as solid as a rock and keeps the banjo in tune, yet when you want to change action height or remove the neck for travel, it happens in a snap. Nechville’s Enterprise bridge is compensated with an efficient geometry that is more sophisticated than we have time to explain. Nechville tailpieces save you time in string changes while mounting strings in a straight line which is scientifically proven to be more sound efficient.
Nechville’s exotic wood Comfort armrest is a favorite feature of Bela’s. He actually likes the Comfort armrest so much that he uses it on several of his acoustic banjos. It simply makes playing more enjoyable. Feel secure that the sturdy case that comes with the Classic will protect your investment for years to come.
From a distance, you see a reminder of the traditional banjo. When you get behind a Classic Deluxe, you’ll leave the others behind.
