Nechville on WFDU Friday

Tom Nechville of Nechville BanjosTomorrow (11/9) banjo builder Tom Nechville will join Carol Beaugard for an interview on WFDU, broadcast in the New York City metro area at 89.1 FM.

Tom will surely discuss his work at Nechville Musical Products, where he has been in the forefront of pushing the boundaries of accepted methods of banjo construction. His solid body electric banjo, The Meteor, has been embraced by prominent progressive banjoist like Bela Fleck, and his Heli-Mount pot assembly design is a radical departure from the head-tensioning systems long employed in the banjo world.
