RESNICK RESOPHONIC BANJO

New product

Announcing the birth of the "The ResNick" Banjonator) The ResNick is a resophonic banjo designed by Ross Nickerson with the expertise of Resophonic Guitar "Dobro" builders Mark Thibeault and Jason Friesen of Rayco Resophonics.

This "Banjonator" as I like to call it was born from an inspiration of mine to make a resophonic banjo that really cut it. Mark Thibeault of Rayco and I worked together in a band for six years and during that time we spent a lot of time perfecting the ResNick Though I know this not the first dobro banjo made, the ResNick is different. We have put a lot of time and thought into working out the problems inherent with putting a instrument like this together and getting the tone up to the standards that a pro could perform on stage with it. Rayco's dobro's are beautiful sounding instruments.



The ResNick also features a specially designed Fults tailpiece made by top banjo tailpiece maker and designer Bob Fults

Some of The Resnicks pictured on this page are custom models. For instance, the hummingbird peghead pictured above was a custom request. The standard model still has diamonds and dots inlay with a choice of most woods and colors though.

Call 1-866-322-6567 or email me at BanjoTeacher.com if you have questions or for pre-orders.

I received the Resnick this morning and have been playing it all day...It plays beautifully, Thanks.....I've been showing it off all over town and people are loving it. Cool eh? Some of the songs I wrote with a normal Banjo sound so unique with the Resnick. It opens a whole new way of creating music., Thanks again Jack............

First I want you to know how awesome the ResNick banjo is.  It's sound is better than I had hoped for.  You guys really know your stuff.  It really has the sound of a resophonic guitar.  I have had a Dobro 'Dobjo" since 1981, and there is no comparison...Thanks again for a fine instrument.  It was definately worth the wait.  Mark Maple - Decatur, IL

Its mere presence is a work of art,

Its mere presence is a work of art, in and of itself. Its every curve and reflection reveal new beauty. My fingers are delightfully tender with wrists to match. It is lovely beyond all form and tune.

t is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and sounds great

Ross, Received the Resnick today. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and sounds great. I LOVE it. I had my second lesson earlier today on the student banjo and when I got home, the Resnick had arrived and needless to say, the student banjo will never be played again by me. The Resnick brings me into a whole new world. Again, thanks for all your help and I am really glad I decided to get the Resnick. I am so excited to learn more and more.

THANKS for absolutely fabulous and fantastic ResNick,

Hi, Ross! At first I would like to say THANKS for absolutely fabulous and fantastic ResNick, what I received yesterday! I don´t have words to say all thanks for such great instrument!!! It took approximately one hour to warm this "5-string lady" up and then it starts to show off...!!! FANTASTIC!!!! What a finishing Mark have done...!!!!! And as I´ve spread a word and showed it to other musicians, it seems, that my musician-carrier flies up very fast...;)
