BANJOS & MANDOLINS

You will always find a fine selection of banjos and mandolins hanging out on our walls!

Goldtone Banjos

We are very proud to represent Goldtone, one of the most innovative instrument companies out there.  Banjos are their main business, and they excel at affordable old timey and bluegrass models. We carry their banjos and often a lap steel, octave mandolin, Paul Beard designed resonators, 0r other stringed wonders. Goldtone instruments feature USA setup, excellent tone and playability, and exceptional value. Call for current stock.

Washburn banjos and mandolins

Washburn offers excellent student grade and up banjos and mandolins. Their B9 is one of the most popular banjos ever made, and we often stock the fancier B10 and the six string banjitar. They have an excellent reputation in the mandolin market as well, and we carry several models.

Ratliff mandolins

Ratliff mandolins are hand carved one at a time by Audey Ratliff in his shop in Church Hill Tennessee. These are some of the best hand built mandolins on the planet, and we are very proud to carry Ratliff (when we can get them).

Big Muddy Mandolins

Handcrafted in Missouri, we are stoked to be one of only a few world wide dealers of Big Muddy Mandolins. All solid woods built in the USA, these flat top models are a must play instrument when shopping for a mando!

Loar mandolins

Loar crafts affordable vintage styled mandolins to go with their exceptional guitar line. Their full line of mandolins has garnered rave reviews in the affordable intermediate mandolin category.
