Nechville Zeus Light Weight Heli-Mount Banjo


As you pick up the Zeus, you'll realize why we named this banjo after the king of gods. You'll be thankful for its unusually light weight. As your left hand explores the gently radiused ebony fingerboard, excitement sparks as you feel the smooth neck and view the inspired peghead shape.

You strum a chord with your right hand. Your eyebrows rise as a big banjo sound leaps out of the Heli-Mount pot. You've discovered banjo sound to the Nth power.

The beveled wooden armrest feels smooth on your forearm and you could play for hours. The neck shape makes chording easier providing clean, distinct and full bodied musical notes. You hear a woody, penetrating clarity with none of the sonic interference that is ever present in other traditional banjos.

Nechville only supplies dealers with a gig bag on the Zeus Model. We upgrade that to Hard Case!

You'll be inspired but not distracted by the understated beauty of the Saturn and Stars inlay. You see that the Nechville inline tailpiece is adjustable three different ways, and you remember that this is a Heli-Mount, customizable for any style or setup. You've heard how stable and versatile the Heli-Mount is, and now are struck by its simple elegant beauty.

The Timbr-Tronic Exotic Wood Open Architecture Tone ring and Cyclotronic tone spheres deliver incredible punch and volume from every note played on the Zeus. Wide frets form a secure foundation for the strings and are longer-lasting.

Now you don't have to settle for less than premium quality craftsmanship and sound. This is the banjo you have been seeking.

An excellent banjo
This is my first Nechville--what an excellent instrument! My first reaction was "this is easier to play" especially on the left hand. The sound on the Zeus is a bit more mellow because of the wooden tone ring, but it still has a bright "banjoey" sound. How do I describe the sound? It just seems more complete with all the ranges of each note sounding completely. This is a great banjo.
