Charlie Cushman Signature Banjo

The Charlie Cushman Signature Series 5 String Kel Kroydon® Banjo was developed by combining the playing and set-up knowledge of Charlie Cushman with the impeccable craftsmanship of Robin Smith along with adding the Dannick Tone Ring developed by Tom Mirisola. This combination creates what Charlie calls "One Great Sounding Banjo". Visit our Banjos / Signature / Cushman page to order yours!

Nick Kimmons brings to the Kel Kroydon Banjo line thirty years of industry experience in his craft. For the last fifteen years, Nick has been hand-engraving beautiful custom pieces exclusively for Gibson® Guitar's Bluegrass Division and other top of the line banjo builders. Nick is a perfectionist who settles for nothing less than reissue excellence.
