Great customer service!

Ross – the Gold Tone GB 250F arrived yesterday and it’s everything you said. What a great banjo. I just hope I can do it justice by learning to play it! Thanks again for calling me from Australia to answer a couple of neophyte questions. I didn’t expect you to call from the land down under! Great customer service! PS – Kathy was great as well, very personable and helpful.

I'm glad that I trusted your judgment and bought it. I

I went to IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Trade show on Fri and played quite a few banjo's while I was there, I again walked away real happy with my BG250F . I'm glad that I trusted your judgment and bought it. I hang out with a lot of songwriters and musicians and everyone I've showed it to was impressed with the value and also the deluxe TKL case that came with it. The action is great and it plays like a dream.

pure heaven

I got the banjo today "12/4/2014" and what a banjo, pure heaven. I want to thank you for all you've done for me. You said what you would do and you did it. A person who keeps his word, how rare, hard to find.
The banjo sounds great. I will tell all my playing friends about you and your web-site.
Thanks again Ross.

bang for the buck

Ross, I just wanted to let you know, you weren't exaggerating about the bang for the buck of this banjo. I took it down to Guitar Center to compare it with several everal different American made banjos selling for close to $4000.... somehow my bg250f blew them all away especially in volume. I took a friend and he agreed that mine sounded better and louder. I walked in there thinking I would be humbled by the expensive banjos. ..... Thanks for steering me to this banjo; I've learned 7 songs so far and am hopelessly hooked on the banjo.

Wow! Banjo delivered today, Christmas Eve.


Thanks Ross. I called you last Thursday with a last minute decision to buy my husband a banjo for Christmas - and here it is Monday and I have it in time to wrap up and put under the tree.
Fabulous customer service at a very busy time of year.
