Hi Ross! The eagle has landed !!! It is absolutely beautiful, and actually it was in tune. I have now tuned it up to G and I'm starting my first lesson.Thanks for helping me with this, and I'm utterly satisfied with my choice of instrument. (The book and the strap has also arrived) Best regards, Terje Sundet (owner of a nice banjo)
.......Thanks for keeping in touch during the purchasing phase of my new Goldtone OB 250+. Buying a banjo from Australia and getting it shipped to my sister's house was something I was not keen to do but was real important to me as my Dad is not long for this earth and I came up from "down under" wanted to share some time and music with him. And the delivery occurred just as you said. The instrument and all accessories were at the house and waiting when I arrived.
I just wanted to say thanks for the unbelievable speed you provided when I ordered a banjo strap from you. I ordered it on friday morning and received it on Monday. That's crazy! I will definitely be doing more business with you. Thanks again

There is nothing more satisfying to a teacher than seeing their students progress and this is the reason why Ross Nickerson is allways on the road offering banjo workshops, banjo cruises, banjo safaris and individual and group online video lessons. Allways check back here for a list of upcoming Events. See you soon!
The Banjo Cruise Workshop is held in a large private conference room that is essentially sound proof and separate from all other passengers. The workshop takes place during the days we are at sea so you can visit all ports and still have plenty of time for fun with your spouse, family or friends while on the cruise. The class sizes are small ensuring that each student receives the assistance and encouragement they need.

Workshops and Shows
Join me for an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience traveling to Africa for an African Photo Safari.
