Steve Huber has been widely recognized as a world-class bluegrass banjo player since his college years when he toured with The Paisleys and Paul Adkins. After earning a degree in mechanical engineering and gaining extensive experience as a machinist, Steve moved to Nashville to work in George Gruhn’s repair shop. His work with Gruhn enabled him to spend a great deal of time playing and studying the qualities and attributes of pre-1942 flathead Gibson banjos. In 1996, he put his studies to work and began manufacturing the Huber Vintage Flathead banjo tone ring. A few years later, he began producing the first Huber Banjos. These banjos are some of the most highly sought-after instruments on the market today. Since moving to Nashville, Steve has continued his work as a professional banjo player while running the Huber Banjo Company during the week. Steve spent several years touring with the award-winning Kenny & Amanda Smith Band (with his Texas & Tennessee brother Ron Inscore on mandolin) until the birth of his daughter Katie prompted him to retire from “road life” in 2005.
