Excerpt From Interview in Fall 2013 for Fourth Volume of "Conversations with North American Banjo Builders"
See the entire 1/2 hour CloverLick interview hosted at Banjo Hangout in addition to other builders. A real opportunity to meet the banjo builders. What an honor it was to be included!
CloverLick Banjos are crafted using top grade woods, parts, my own hand made tone rings and nickel or our brass hardware. Our Cloverlick line of banjos are made one at a time and are truly handcrafted instruments. We believe our banjos are unique in their appearance, tone, dynamics, and playability. Take a look around the site and enjoy your visit. Contact us with any questions you might have. Thanks for stopping by.
Of course, the store in stock models are based on what has been the most popular over the years. Beginning in Spring 2014 we will be offering banjos in our online store for the quickest delivery and the best prices.
The banjos in the store have pictures and a sound track so you can see and hear what you buy. All banjos ship with a 30 day no questions full refund return warranty and a 5 year warranty for defects in material and workmanship, usual wear and use is excluded.
Cloverlick we are making an effort to build our banjos with minimal environmental impact. This is accomplished by using woods that are not encroaching rainforests, readily available, and renewable. We also use hand rubbed oil finishes which use little solvents and hazardous chemicals. Minimal stains used to enhance the natural wood beauty. Much final detail and sanding is done with scrapers and draw blades. I am sure you will be pleased with these efforts and I am confident you will not notice any compromises in our fine quality banjos.
