Serial Number 000, this banjo was originally named the Ozark Songbird and was built for Jeremy Myers’ personal banjo. Jeremy moved to Alaska in 2014 and changed the name of his company to Snowbird Banjo Company. After a short 2 year excursion in the 49th state, Jeremy and his family moved back to the Ozarks to land he owned in Ava Missouri.
Sold to a family member, this banjo was an 11-inch custom built banjo made of walnut and having an ebony tone ring and trim. The laminated neck can be varied for desired look, but by default, will have a maple laminate to increase the strength of the neck as well as an aircraft aluminum strength rod running the length of the neck.
I will continue to update this page as time allows and I hope you will check back often. Be sure to check out my Facebook page to keep up to date with the latest.
For now, here is a demo video I did to showcase the sound quality from the this banjo using clawhammer style playing.
Here’s my Friend Dylan Barber playing
Here’s a bluegrass player playing the same banjo.
Jeremy describes himself as an autodidact, multi-Instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, banjo builder, beekeeper, and a family man!

Give me a call when you get a chance.
Hi Patrick, I am sorry that I missed your comment. I’ve been in the very long process of moving and have put banjo building on hiatus. However, even though I do not have a shop currently, I am working on my web presence again. I have renamed the banjo company and I am in the workings of re-branding. I see you offer hardware. Are you still needing me to call?
