UK Banjo Advice
Expert Service and Advice -
Advice & expert service is available by e-mail, telephone or in person at the Banjo Works by prior appointment. You can click for address
and contact details or for directions and a map.
Phone hours are 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday, e-mail is dealt with at least twice a day and personal appointments are available between 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday. Closed Saturdays, Sundays & Bank Holidays
You can get advice of all sorts on banjos. There are pages on this site with "Advice for beginners" and "frequently asked questions" but these cannot be exhaustive. Do try these first but you can phone or e-mail the Banjo Works with other queries - with complex technical problems, it may be necessary to make an appointment to bring the instrument to the Banjo Works. Please bear in mind that it's sometimes impossible to deal with complicated matters on the phone, especially if the Banjo Works is busy. A specific appointment at the Banjo Works or an e-mail with pictures will often be very much easier to cope with!
You can also get expert service to your instrument, sometimes on a "while you wait" basis, by either making an appointment to come to the Banjo Works or sending your instrument via a parcel service. For most people, the ParcelForce 48 service from a local Post Office will be the most convenient and economic method. Please see the set-up, repairs and restoration service page for further details.
