I just wanted to say thanks to Bob Smakula, who sent me a couple of 5th string nut to repair my banjo. I received them today.

He sent me 2 pieces very kindly and completely for free, due to the problems i have here in Spain to find that spare part or make it.

Not very often you find people in this world called earth that help an unknown person "for free".

Thanks again Bob!!

Bob is the go to guy for banjo parts etc. We are lucky to have him.

If nothing else, the descriptions of the instruments for sale on his site are hilarious. (He wrote me that his son writes them).

This reminds me that I have to place another order of something soon. My wife has run off with every single one of those great ballpoint pens. :D

But seriously, Smakula Fretted Instruments is a great source for banjo hardware! Especially when you live in another country and most other companies seem to charge absurdly inflated shipping prices instead of actual international shipping cost.
