    Customer Comments
    "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

    "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

  • Banjo Capo
    Banjo Capo

    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 Paige banjo capos are really good quality and hold up very well.

    We carry 5-string caposcapo spikes and sliding capos and some practical advice for when and when not to use a capo and returning the banjo after putting a capo on.


    We also carry the best banjo capo of it's kind on the market - Hand designed and crafted by banjo innovator, Bill Stokes


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

We have wood banjo stands as well as strong steel constructed stands for banjo. We also carry wall hangers for hanging your banjo on the wall in case that could work better for you too.

    As a banjo teacher the way I see it is if your banjo is easier to grab you may practice more which anything that encourages practice is always a good thing. Always use caution when using a Banjo Stand or Wall Hanger though. Use in a safe place with no swinging doors, dogs or small children!
