Sloan Banjos are made with the finest quality materials.


Our standard is an 11" Maple Hardwood Rim, with 4 layers of 1/8" laminated lumber. The Maple is soaked until saturated, then transfered into our Steamer. Once removed the Maple strips are immediately rolled and set to dry in molds. Each Rim is laminated in our 11"Jig to ensure consistenancy every time.
