    Banjo Straps Available at BanjoTeacher.com

    BanjoTeacher.com carries a large variety of banjo straps that are specifically made for banjo carrying only banjo straps that we've actually used and can recommend. We have leather banjo straps, quick release straps, low priced banjo straps that have leather tabs so there is no metal to metal noise, cradle straps and custom made banjo straps. You have to have a good strap for a banjo and one specifically made for a banjo.

    Hi Ross, My order just came in. The all leather strap is excellent leather quality (I used to hand tool/carve out of sides of leather so I know something about it). It attached and adjusted easily. Really a good idea, that leather looping through leather adjustment. It came in just in time to show it off tonight at the Friday night jam. That $10 banjo stand is nice an compact to tote along and is more stable than using my guitar stand. Dennis Lottman


    Customer comments
    I attended the very first banjo camp that Ross held in Nova Scotia and was super impressed with his approach to playing, his dedication to teaching, and his knowledge of banjo products. I now look to BanjoTeacher for advice on what to buy. It’s really nice to have a personal attachment to a vendor and I value the relationship greatly. Keep up the great work! Thanks Gord

  • Capos
    Capos

    These models of capos I carry are the best types of capo for banjo and what I recommend. Some models you can easily adjust the pressure on the strings which causes minimal need for returning. If you prefer the quick capoing action of the spring loaded capo, the Nashville by Performance Capos is the best of its type on the market.

    I can count on Ross to sift through all of the available stuff and only carry what he considers as worthy....Thanks, Gord
