Science Channel visits First Quality

The Science ChannelA recent edition of the How It’s Made program, broadcast on The Science Channel, focused on the banjo – and how it’s made.

To film this segment, the producers and crew visited First Quality Musical Supply in Louisville, KY where The Sullivan Banjos are made. This led to a roughly five minute piece on the show which follows the construction of a banjo from rough wood cutting to final assembly and set up.

The First Quality folks have made the video available on YouTube for anyone who missed the show last week.
