Tools of the Trade – the Kunkel Banjo

Kunkel Banjo

One instrument that our Lifestyle Editor Eric Dahl has been wowed by is the Kunkel Banjo, as he explained for us as part of our Tools of the Trade segment
If you’re tired of the standard heavy banjo that is the norm with production models, you might want to consider a light weight Kunkel Banjo.
Handcrafted by master luthier Bruce Kunkel in his Nashville, TN shop, each banjo has a hand carved wooden tone ring instead of the typical metal.
Kunkel developed the machines to make his banjos and he has a variety of models to choose from that offer a warmer, less metallic sound that is created from beautiful tone woods.
Bruce achieved national recognition while creating art guitars for Gibson’s Custom shop and now he develops his own guitar design innovations and the Kunkel Banjo!
