We set up every banjo to maximize playability and sound, making sure the head tension is set properly, the bridge is positioned for proper intonation and the action is low with no string buzz or high frets -- we want our customers to pluck to their heart's content.
Marietta, GA (PRWEB) September 17, 2009
John Drummond launched http://www.Banjo.com because he wanted a local resource that was dedicated to serving the needs of banjo players. "I wanted to compare the many different brands side-by-side, in one location. Most stores had a huge selection of guitars and only one or two banjos. This predicament and a lifelong passion for banjos led me to start this small enterprise."
Launched in 2003, Banjo.com started as a small retail store offering a handful of banjos from the most popular manufacturers. The selection has since swelled to offer more than 600 distinctive banjos. Other acoustic bluegrass instruments were added in the years since -- guitars, fiddles, mandolins, resonator guitars and dulcimers. This has drawn banjo and bluegrass players from North and South America, Europe, Asia and even Australia to visit the Atlanta-area Banjo.com showroom.
"We invite all who visit our showroom to compare different banjos side by side," said Drummond. "We set up every banjo to maximize playability and sound, making sure the head tension is set properly, the bridge is positioned for proper intonation and the action is low with no string buzz or high frets -- we want our customers to pluck to their heart's content."
While the Banjo.com staff understands that not all customers can make a trip to the Atlanta-area showroom, they are committed to serving customers worldwide. Products are shipped every day to locations around the world. The company staff is easily accessible online, and questions can be submitted through the website's new blog at http://www.TheBanjoGuru.com.
"This blog is a public forum where banjo players can ask questions about specific banjos, or even request a custom banjo we don't have on the website," said Drummond. "Our resident banjo experts will also be posting topics about all things banjo, to entertain and inform."
With one of the largest selections of banjos and bluegrass instruments in the world, and an unsurpassed commitment to customer satisfaction, musicians will appreciate the depth of knowledge and personal attention they receive from the staff at Banjo.com.
