Second Life Banjo


                                           Arcand banjos 

                                                                                

I uses sugar maple, red maple and black cherry from the surroundings and from my land .The black walnut is from a local supplier and is from the north-east states of the USA or local lumbers. I only use the very best pieces of wood for a high structural stability and sound quality. I also have some exotic woods in reserve for special projects. The wood is air dry and seasoned in my shop for at least 3 years.

The rims are made of North American hard maple, black cherry, white oak and black walnut. 


The high quality of the chosen pieces of wood  and  the way the wood is dried makes every Arcand banjo a unique and high quality instrument.

Some of the hardware parts including tension hoop, bracket shoes, rolled brass tone rings, flesh hoops and tailpieces are handkmade by me .
