Athena

Defy Gravity

Introducing Earth's lightest professional resonator banjo. Weighing in just over six pounds, the Athena is light and elegant. Its Timber-Tronic tone ring sounds brilliant, every bit as good as its heavier bronze counterpart. While the wood ring is standard, arch and flat top tone rings are possible. The neck width is industry standard, with a comfortable profile that is slightly narrower than other Nechvilles.
