We established the American Canjo Company as a C. B. Gitty brand specific for our one and two-string canjos - easy-to-play instruments that feature tin cans, boxes and other metal items as the resonators. Many of our custom creations also feature antique reclaimed wood necks, and other vintage reclaimed hardware.
Our canjo creations have used motor oil cans, tobacco tins, vintage steel beer cans, flour tins, drinking mugs, cookie tins and coffee cans, and we are always on the looking for cool new tins and cans to make use of. All of our instruments are here in the C. B. Gitty Workshops in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire, USA.
We've also created a video series specifically on the canjo, entitled "The Essential Canjo". Use the links below to view the videos on CigarBoxGuitar.com:
