A one of kind Nechville. Nechville started in Toms home garage shop in the 1980_s. Early prototypes of the Heli-mount banjo were introduced in Nashville in 1989 and sales began slowly in the 90_s. Tom moved into an office/shop headquarters converted from a 1930_s farmhouse in 2001. The location served them well for a few years until the city purchased the Nechville building due to street widening in 2005, paving the way for an expansion into a more productive factory/warehouse and office. The current home of Nechville Musical Products is a 13,000 sq foot industrial / office / retail building located at 9700 Humboldt Ave. S., Bloomington, MN 55431. The latest Nechville expansion was the acquisition of Woodhaven Industries, The nations top tone ring producer. Now NMP is geared for OEM Tone ring production giving Nechville a firm vertical integration in the growing banjo market. The goal of Nechville Musical Products is to innovate to meet the changing needs of modern musicians. Reducingnearly seventy parts of a traditional banjo to two has benefited thousands of Heli-Mount players with time saving and purer banjo sound. Toms electric banjos and pickups continue to find solutions and feed the evolution of the banjo. Nechville is eager to build the instrument youve been dreaming about.
