​Fine, handcrafted open-back banjos from the mountains of North Carolina
Welcome
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 CMB, we enjoy the process, always building 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. 
Why a Cedar Mountain Banjo?
​Sound - The CMB is full and rich throughout the entire register. It is never "tinny" or "thin" when played softly, or "crashy" when played loudly. Please visit the Media page for sound samples and video.

Options - CMB provides models with a variety of scale lengths, rim sizes, neck widths, set-ups, and price points to meet a wide range of playing styles and client budgets. 

Aesthetics - Maintaining a design that is both traditional and contemporary, painstaking effort goes into every CMB to ensure pleasing lines and proportions. At CMB, every banjo must please the hand and eye, as well as the ear.

Handmade - CMBs are crafted entirely in the mountains near Asheville, North Carolina with hand-selected materials- by musicians for musicians, in an environment of tradition and innovation.

Experience - Since forming CMB in 1996, we have built nearly 600 banjos for happy customers all over the globe.

Warranty - Limited Lifetime warranty. No questions 15 day money back guarantee warranty
