Bellbird Banjos Launch New Website

by | 3 Sep, 2009

Bellbird Banjos has launched their new website at

Some major developments for us have included the much awaited release in the United States in 2009 of the Ross Nickerson Signature Model Series of elite 5 string banjos. There are five banjos currently in this line and they have really begun turning heads in the US on the festival circuit.
Secondly, a most exciting project has been the release of the Bellbird Ulysses model electric banjo. I had the privilege of spending some time with Béla Fleck when he was in Australia and apart from him playing a number of Bellbird banjos, Béla also got to see and play our very first, newly completed Bellbird electric banjo. It was both a thrill and a great honor for me to hear this legend of the banjo play my instruments, but even more so when Béla asked me to make him his own Ulysses model banjo.
This past year I also have added another 2 models to our Bellbird range. Firstly The Cracka our African mahogany model, and secondly The Raintree our full timber all-in-one rim and tone ring. It is a magnificent model with the sweetest, most powerful tone.
Please take the time to view our range of superb 5 string banjos and remember, I can also custom make a banjo to suit fully your needs as a serious player – Peter Nahuysen, Bellbird Banjos.
