Ron has built 2 banjos for me in the last couple years and both of them are in a league of their own. They were both built around Yates ring/rims but Ron did the neck build, fit/finish, assembly, and resonator. He was very communicative from the first conversation and timely with the build.
I have owned all the major builders banjos (Huber, Hatfield, Heartland, Neat, Deering, Stelling, OME, ect) and Ron's belong in the same conversation as far as quality. He passes along savings and his prices are substantially less than the above mentioned builders. For any other future builds, I'll absolutely be reaching out to Ron Coleman.
