Huber Banjos introduces The Berkshire

The Huber Berkshire modelSteve Huber and his talented team of craftsmen at Huber Banjos have a new model in their line.

The Berkshire was introduced officially at this past October’s IBMA convention in Nashville and is featured in their 2008 catalog. It was designed to address customer demand for a flame maple, nickel-plated banjo, and is the first to feature Huber’s new Hearts & Petals inlay pattern.

Like all Huber models, the Berkshire is made with the Huber Vintage Flathead tone ring and their hide glue, 3-ply maple rim, steel coordinator rods, one-piece die cast flange and a rosewood fingerboard. It sells for $3975, and more photos and details can be found on the Huber site.

The Huber banjo capoAlso newly introduced on the Huber site is Steve’s stainless steel banjo capo, precision machined for smooth operation and tuning accuracy. They are available in either nickel ($120) or gold plate ($140), and either can be shaped to match a radiused fingerboard for an additional $10.

You can request a free copy of the 2008 Huber banjos catalog by calling the shop at 615-264-4959, or by email.
