I recently purchased a 1930 Kel Kroydon Style 11 from Ross. It was my first large purchase from banjoteacher.com and I was very impressed. He worked with me one the price to where it sold for about the same price as a comparable banjo for sale here recently by a private party. Unlike that sale, Ross threw in free shipping, a 3 year Gold membership to his site and all the instructional materials, his latest CD and a jam along dvd. The banjo arrived well packed and as described (a beauty!). Well done!
Another thumbs up for Ross. I purchased 2 banjos from him, and both times he provided first rate service to me. I wouldn't hesitate buying from Mr Nickerson again.
Big fan of Ross as a teacher, too. Just wish he still did his Buffalo sessions. But his Banjo Encyclopedia and other learning tools have been invaluable
Ross Nickerson is a kind and knowledgeable man. I've purchased some of his excellent learning materials and he has spoken to me and advised me about banjos several times even though I was not buying one from him. A good guy.
I bought my RK 76 elite from Ross and he was extremely helpful. Ross spent time with me, answered all my questions. What gets me is he actually answers the phone when you call, unusual these days for sure.
