The Cedar Mountain Banjo is a twenty-first century instrument with its roots in a second-generation tradition of the finest materials and master craftsmanship.

Here at Cedar Mountain Banjos, we enjoy the building process, always crafting with an eye for graceful design, an ear for exciting sounds, and a feel for friendly playability.

Cedar Mountain Banjos are being played by some of the finest professional musicians, but are priced well within the reach of most advancing players, and even beginners who wish to start out with a great instrument. We offer several highly-customizable models to suit a wide range of preferences.

Since crafting our first banjo in the hills near Asheville, NC in 1996, we have strived to make world-class instruments with sublime tone, playability, and award-winning design. Our diverse product offerings, fine craftsmanship, experience, and excellent customer service has earned CMB a solid reputation as one of the top builders in the open-back banjo market.

While you’re here, be sure to check out our new online shop, where you can easily price and order a new build, or link to recommended accessories and other products. We’ll also be coming out with periodic news updates and banjo tips.

We hope you enjoy our site, and thank you for visiting Cedar Mountain Banjos!
