What banjo brands are the best?
This is obviously a heavily debated topic. Some people are going to prefer Chevy over Ford, both companies have been around for a very long time so they must be doing something right. Well, the same thing applies to banjo brands. As mentioned above, we focus on American brands that craft extremely well-built instruments.
The Deering Banjo Company is one you’re probably familiar with. They have been at this since the 1970’s and they make some of the best in the business. They also make Vega banjos. If you are looking for other great American brands, check out Bishline and Nechville.
