We are thrilled to receive our next banjos from David Getman, the creator of Lindale banjos! David lives in Houston and took a trip to Lockhart one day some time back to visit our shop and check out some of the banjos we had available. Lucky for us, he happened to bring along one that he had just completed himself for comparison. We were instantly impressed...very impressed.

David's passion and knowledge of banjos is immense. The quality and craftsmanship are on par with instruments from some long time builders that cost thousands more. On top of his eye for precision detail and beautiful work, Mr. Getman himself is a phenomenal banjo player and it comes through in his creations. In our opinion, the tonal qualities of his instruments cross that elusive threshold in which the words "better or worse" lose meaning and only one's personal tastes are the determining factors.
