"If only a banjo could sound as good as it looks, and look as good as it sounds... Well, with Matt Arcara's banjos, this is just the case. Beautiful tone and playability, and thoughtful, intricate craftsmanship. Some of the best around."

-Cahalen Morrison of the duo Cahalen and Eli

"Matt's work is beautiful and precise, and his instruments offer exceptional value in the world of small-shop banjo production...It has a penetrating sound, with more power and cut than you'd expect from a 12" pot

-The Music Emporium

Lukas Pool plays a Matthew Arcara 12" custom open-back banjo at The Music Emporium in Lexington, MA. Rolled brass tone ring, Renaissance head, Walnut rim & neck. Our banjos are recorded with two Sterling Audio ST-55 microphones and a Zoom H4N. No EQ, editing or effects
