Norwich, UK (PRWEB UK) 7 July 2012
The company is already the UK main stockist for USA-imported Goldtone banjos and American-handmade Nechville banjos, plus UK-based brands including Tanglewood and Barnes & Mullins, and has announced a growth programme which will see them offering the widest range of banjos available in Britain and Europe.
Ozark is a long established brand with a wide range of instruments from beginner openback and resonator banjos through to intermediate and professional level.
Pilgrim is a newer UK brand, an offshoot of the Vintage marque of John Hornby Skewes. Pilgrim has launched a range of affordable banjos designed by experienced player and maker Paul Tebbutt. The Pilgrim range includes bluegrass and clawhammer style banjos.
Banjos Direct, which was launched in December 2011, has grown rapidly to become a leader in the UK's renaissance of interest in the banjo.
Founder and CEO of Banjos Direct, Simon Middleton said: "Our growth has proved that there is a real appetite for a modern online specialist banjo store in the UK which combines an enjoyable online shopping experience with truly exceptional service and product advice."
"Taking on Ozark and Pilgrim banjos substantially expands the choice we offer to customers, and with our added value of great service, instrument set-up and advice, we know the Banjos Direct brand will continue to grow. We intend to add more great banjo brands to our range over the coming months, including American greats like Stelling, Gibson and Deering banjos, as well as our own UK-made Islander range," Middleton added.
Banjos Direct is the UK's fastest-growing specialist banjo retailer, leading the renaissance of interest in the banjo amongst players of every age and background. The Norwich-based company is the UK's leading stockist of USA brands GoldTone and Nechville, and also stocks instruments by Barnes & Mullins, Pilgrim, Ozark and Tanglewood.
Founder and CEO of Banjos Direct, Simon Middleton, is frontman of English-Americana band The Proposition, whose debut album 'King Snake Devil Shake' was released this year. Middleton is also the author of several books on marketing and branding, including 'Build A Brand In 30 Days' and the new guide to personal reinvention 'Brand New You'.
