Called Banjo Studio and spoke with David. I already knew what I wanted, and just wanted to make sure that the store checked to make sure the banjo was set up properly. David assured me that it was part of their service, so I went ahead and ordered it. I've been thrilled with the banjo. It's so much easier to play than my old Goodtime banjo. Have been very happy with my purchase and the purchase price was competitive with every other price I've seen, I don't think Deering allows for much of a discount on their retail price, but $750 the best I could find.
Beautiful instrument and price. I couldn't have chosen a better instrument or source. David (Banjo Studio) is widely acknowledged and respected throughout the industry, including by Deering. Am excited to begin the adventure of learning claw-hammer. Thanks for setting me out on the right foot.
Great prompt delivery. Stays in tune, great product.
I decided on a particular banjo and BanjoStudio had the best deal by far. The whole transaction was smooth. Delivery was prompt. Communication was excellent. It doesn't get any better than BanjoStudio!
Love my new Deering Artisan Banjo! It rings out so beautifully and is very comfortable sitting in my lab. I think the weight is perfect, only about 6 lbs! Very fun to play! David, at Banjo Studio, did a fantastic job of answering all my questions. My Banjo was shipped out quickly and was packaged very nicely. Could not ask for better service, great job! I will shop again in the future.
