The Bedford Banjo Shop is an unexpected gem of a specialty business in the picturesque town of Bedford, PA. If you're in the region, the town of Bedford itself is worth the drive. If you're interested in acoustic instruments in general and banjos in particular you owe it to yourself to check out Mike and Karla Amato's shop. Mike has changed the head on my '27 Tubaphone a couple of times, tweaked various parts to get the instrument sounding just right. Mike's prices are fair and, most importantly, I trust he'll do any repair work with expertise and care. Plus, the shop sells an interesting array of banjo-related books and accessories. Highly recommended.
