From the UTEBanjos.com homepage:

UTE Banjos are basic, no-frills instruments that are designed to capture the spirit and flavor of the late 19th and early 20th century banjos.

These instruments give maximum tone, response, and playability for an affordable price.

The Premium has more hooks than the Standard model but is otherwise identical.

Each instrument is hand-made in our shop in Boulder, Colorado from US and imported materials and parts, and comes complete with a padded gig bag.
