Edited: Well it took 53 days to get here. But the Banjo is great, and the price was great. So 5 Stars for price and quality, 1 for delivery. Lets call it 3 Stars ok? Just be aware that you may have to... wait a bit for a banjo that you will treasure forever. Worth the wait? I think so. All's well that Ends well.
Original post:
"So far
I'm on 48 days waiting for a banjo, paid in Full on Dec. 14th. Haven't received an email response back in over a week. Feeling like maybeI've been scammed? Last email stated received said it would be shipped last week, but it is still not shipped. Unhappy."

Got a Gold Tone Banjola for my wife and she loves it so much that she plays it more than her other banjo right now. I was worried about the shipping 'cause we are living in Michigan. But the package a...rrived nicely packed, and the setup was perfect not to mention the quality.
And thanks for sending me the starter kit too.
My wife said she would buy from here next time if she needs another banjo. Well, probably I'll be the one buying her that another one. :D

Item paid for and on back order for over 51 days???? that is lousy service after I contacted Deerling and they said they would call Banjo and get the situation straightened out I just received a cal...l from Deerling stating that Banjo said the item will be mailed. Apparently Banjo thought the order was fulfilled. Just wish they would have paid attention to the emails i sent, maybe i would not have had to wait over 51 days for a response

Update: Received a phone call from the owner of the company, and received the rest of my order today. Thank you very much. It is shame that Darling messed everything up so badly...56 days and all is good.

I purchased the Deering Julia Belle. Before the purchase, I had several email exchanges with Barry Waldrep, regarding this and other banjos. Barry answered my (in hindsight, sometimes silly) questions... in a timely, complete,friendly, and to the point manner. After the purchase, the banjo was shipped to Connecticut quickly, arriving well-package and, YES, ready to play right out of the box.

NOTE: The only reason I am only providing a 5-star rating here is due to the fact that there are only 5 stars. Otherwise, a 10-star rating would be well-earned and more than due. **********

Just ordered a custom Deering Calico through Barry. What a fantastic experience. If you look up customer service in the dictionary, there is a picture of Barry Waldrep and a hyperlink to his store.

Barry at Banjo . Com helped me make a great choice on purchasing a new banjo. He answered my emails and phone calls promptly . After a few conversations I went with his newly designed Bish Line Coal ...Dust . I ordered it and he kept me updated on its progress . It arrived in perfect condition and its even nicer than he described . I will keep Banjo . Com at the top of my list for any future purchases and would highly recommend them to others. Thank You again to Barry and his staff . See More
