Huss and Dalton

Huss and Dalton Guitar Company, Inc., began in late summer 1995 when Jeff Huss and Mark Dalton had the idea to build the guitar they wanted to play. While appreciating the traditional design, both had a vision of a guitar that paid homage to tradition while incorporating improvements in the structural design and cosmetics of the steel-string guitar. These two work with a small team to build a range of steel-strings, from bluegrass machines, to fine fingerpickers.

Jeff Huss started out building banjos for Stelling, for about nine years. He built his first guitar there on nights and weekends. After Geoff Stelling heard the guitar, he wanted one. So he built one for him. A customer heard Geoff’s and wanted one. So I started building guitars for Stelling. Then he decided to build them for himself, so he left Stelling and set up shop in his garage. The rest as they say is history Going back to their beginnings, they are now making fine old-time and bluegrass banjos!

Huss and Dalton currently has over two dozen different models with many options for customization available. Their Slope-D’s are among the best guitars being made today. Every one we’ve had either in Indian Rosewood or Mahogany has been just super. They all have an excellent mid-range kick which of course contributes to their warmth. All Huss and Dalton models are topped with AAA grade woods which are checked individually for load bearing abilities, and are thickness sanded to achieve the best balance of strength and flexibility.

We had our Huss and Dalton Singletree Maple Dobson done in a really cool transparent black finish. It gives the banjo a great retro look and feel. The sound of this banjo is huge, with a natural warmth in the bass range and a nice bell like quality in the high notes.
