Banjos at The Folk Shop

​​We buy and sell banjos in all configurations and styles and have a whole room--Banjo Heaven--full of new and used banjos to choose from.  We include a total set-up to make each banjo sound as good as it can. Every banjo, even the cheapest, has its own voice and we respect that sound. Please e-mail us at with your banjo-related questions.


While we take pride in our used and vintage selection, we are also proud to be a dealer of several lines of new instruments as well. We can't list our ever-changing lines of used and vintage instruments, but here are new banjos that we are dealers for:  

Gold Tone Banjos
