About Us

Nechville Banjos East is located at the Turtle Hill Banjo Company in ​beautiful Annapolis, Maryland. We specialize in the sales, service, ​and setup of Nechville Banjos. We are a resource for accessories ​and lessons, and we embrace our strong musical community.

Tom Nechville (Sisters, Oregon) is the creator of the unique ​Nechville Helimount system, a radical reinvention of banjo design ​and technology.

Replacing more than seventy parts of a traditional banjo, the ​Helimount body tightens the head with a simple 2 part mechanism. ​It is similar to twisting a jar into is lid; greatly reducing the setup ​time and improving the banjo's sound for a more enjoyable playing ​experience.

Banjo players who have embraced Nechville’s cutting-edge designs ​include Steve Martin, Bela Fleck, Noam Pikelny, Alison Brown, Tim ​Carter, Emily Robison (Dixie Chicks), Enda Scahill (We Banjo 3), ​Claudio Parravacini (Milan Italy), and Billy Failing (Billy Strings).
