In the 1980s in a garage somewhere near Nashville, TN, a banjo maker named Tom Nechville was hard at work perfecting his innovative banjo designs. Out of this intense focus on building sonically superior banjos, Tom won several patents including one for Helical mounted or Heli-mount banjos. He’s even credited with starting the newest trend in banjos known as Flex-Tones. American ingenuity at its best.
