The vision and the oversight comes from Steve Huber, who founded the company and is responsible for the design and manufacture of both the banjos and the many components made by Huber for use in the banjos. His history with banjos and bluegrass music goes back many years, and is told in some detail in our Huber Story.
Steve has assembled a staff who work with him each day in the shop to ensure that the new Huber Banjos are built to his exacting specs, assembled and set up to perfection, and delivered to their new owners as quickly as possible.
Steve Huber is the driving force as well as fearless leader of the Huber Banjos team. He has played the banjo since he was in his teens, and performed professionally for many years, both before and during his tenure at the Huber helm.
In addition to his skill and experience as a banjo player, Steve also has extensive training as a machinist, a degree in mechanical engineering and a work history in the manufacturing of metal components before launching his company. He first stepped into the banjo business with the introduction of his Huber Vintage Flathead tone ring in 1996, following that a few years later with the introduction of the first Huber Banjos.
Steve oversees day-to-day operation of the company, both on the management side and in the shop where the banjos are built and assembled. He is also continually researching design, component and set up modifications that can enhance the quality and consistency of the many Huber products.
