The banjo reviews database is here to help educate people before they purchase an instrument. Of course, this is not meant to be a substitute for playing the instrument yourself!

I have used these for about three years for all kinds of banjo paraphernalia, from the regular replacements items such as strings to more permanent fixtures like tail pieces. They have recently improved their website and the delivery time seems to have improved by a day or two (orders normally arrive in 3 or 4 days). They are the official Deering retailers in the UK and there is sometimes the sense you are being directed to Deering goods over others, although this is based on online surfing rather than direct contact with a salesperson, so I may be reading this wrong. Some past orders have been a little slow but the store's online presence has become more professional and efficient. Not a perfect online shopping experience but a good one nonetheless.

Eagle Music is, in my opinion THE best acoustic music store in the UK.
The largest Deering Banjo Co. dealer in the world. The first UK retailer to be selected by prolific luthier Patrick James Eggle. The only UK dealer to supply the awesome Czech made Prucha Bluegrass instruments. Top Tanglewood retailer. Premier distributor for "Perfect Touch" finger and thumb picks. The list is endless.
Eagle offer a FREE Premier set-up by one of their on-site experts on all instruments.
All staff at Eagle Music are passionate about music and are committed to supplying the very best service to every customer, whether they are buying a plectrum or several thousand pounds worth of professional quality instrument. All staff are more than capable to give personalised and high quality advice. A warm welcome awaits everyone who walks through the door.
Eagle music also supply a fantastic, safe and fast mail order service.
I certainly won't be using any other store from now on. Eagle Music have really pushed the boundaries as far as top quality Music Retail goes and still maintain rock bottom prices and the the absolute pinnacle of service.
