    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 Stands
    Banjo Stands

    Banjo Stands at Banjoteacher.com

    We feature Banjo Stands for resonator banjos and open back banjos that are sturdy and strong enough for a banjo with a low center of gravity for safer use. There are many types of stands for banjo you could use but we only carry banjo stands that we test and know will work for banjos. 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!
