Highly-figured flame maple is used for the Workhorse CM-3 necks.
Huber necks are known to be the most comfortable and easy playing necks being made today. Produced using computer aided machining technology, each neck is crafted to the exact specifications every time!
Matching the grain in the neck, the Workhorse CM-3 resonator has an overlay of highly-figured flame maple.
The “Workhorse” series banjos all have a classic 1930’s look (because we love pre-war banjos) with a double-cut peg-head and the abbreviated “leaves & bows” inlay pattern.
The nameplate inlay at the 21st fret is engraved “Workhorse”.
The pearl block inlay at the 21st fret is engraved with the name Sammy Shelor.
All of the Huber Banjos come with Waverly V-2 tuners installed. The V-2s work very well and closely approximate the look of those found on vintage banjos. The tapered underside of the peghead washer helps protect the headstock and the internal low-friction bushings help ensure smooth operation.
The tuners are fitted with authentic recreations of 1930’s “Amber Tulip” buttons and help create the proper vintage feel.
The Workhorse Series banjos feature an Ebony fingerboard.
The Huber bridge is made of carefully selected maple and ebony and is designed for tone, volume, and clarity. String slots are cut with a custom-built slotting machine that produces the exact depth, spacing, and angle every time.
The Huber bridge is also available as a separate accessory item order.
The “844′ Tone Ring is actually no stranger to the Huber shop. We have been making this tone ring and private labeling it to other builders for the past 12 years. It is a bronze alloy that makes a great tone ring. The Workhorse banjos provides us, for the first time, the opportunity to offer this tone ring under the Huber brand.
Through a special arrangement with Remo, Huber installs a head on each new banjo that is manufactured to his custom specifications. Steve finds that they offer a superior tone to that of the stock Mylar heads offered for banjo.
These Huber heads can also be ordered as a separate, after-market accessory item.
The Huber “Vintage” Rim is manufactured from 3-plys of hard maple by Bryan Sims, exclusively for Huber Banjos. They are then turned to size and finished at the Huber shop.
We use a two way adjustable truss rod in our necks. The two way rod allows for adjustments in both directions – you can add relief or reduce bow as needed.
The rod is accessible under the truss rod cover in the headstock, just behind the nut.
Our “Workhorse CM-3” model is finished in a light golden brown stain and satin lacquer. The sides of the resonator and neck are bound in white binding.
Like the storied pre wars which inspired them, the “Workhorse” series banjos have a Presto-style tailpiece installed during final assembly and set up. we feel that the lighter weight of this sort of tailpiece is best suited to the sound he is after, and admires the simplicity of the design. It does the job and looks the part.
Each Huber banjo is shipped in its own plush lined hard shell case.The top lid is arched for superior protection.
Every Huber Banjo is warranted to the original owner without time limit, often described as a “Limited Lifetime Warranty.”
