Cedar Mountain Banjos, Brevard, NC
Lo Gordon & Tim Gardner
Fine, handcrafted banjos from the mountains of western North Carolina
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.
