Rob Zwally Luthier Reviews

I met Rob when I decided to buy a banjo, shopped around online and decided on a Deering Artisan Goodtime Special.  I perused the Deering dealers and found Rob's site, contacted him, and purchased the banjo through his business.  I can't speak to Rob's many years as a luthier because I didn't get any 'work' done, but I can speak to his professionalism, integrity, and (in my case) the patience required with working with someone new to the banjo and from a distance to boot.  From my perspective the time and distance (I live a few states away) were worth it.  Thanks Rob - keep up the very good work!

Rob has 30+ years of experience as a luthier and speaks with quiet sincerity about what he can do with any banjo you entrust to his care. His diagnosis is thorough and his estimates accurate. He takes time to make sure that you understand the work that he will do and the results that you can reasonably expect. He did an outstanding job taking a mediocre, homemade open-back to sound better than I had a right to expect. He is honest, direct, and obviously cares deeply about the quality of his work. I recommend him without hesitation. Check his qualifications and philosophy at his website, www.stringdoc. com.
