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.

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.

The Premium model is nearly identical to the Standard model, but features extra rim brackets.

This model features custom gold tuners at no extra cost.
