I am located inside a really nice music store in La Plata; Island Music Company, at 403 Charles Street. My hours are appointment only (my area is locked when I’m not there). Since I live only a few blocks from the shop, if I'm not away I can be there whenever needed. Just give me a call.

Turtle Hill Banjo Company is a very unusual business. Although we maintain a good inventory of new and used banjos, we do very little with any other type of instrument.

New Banjos
We are authorized dealers for Bishline, Deering, Nechville, Ome, and Stelling banjos. With many models in stock, you won’t have to wait months for your instrument to be built. Along with very competitive prices we offer friendly, knowledgeable, and personal service before and after the sale -- just ask anyone who has ever purchased a banjo from us!

Used Banjos
Our inventory of used banjos constantly changes, and ranges from prewar Gibsons to nearly new instruments.

We Buy Banjos
If you have a banjo for sale, please give us a call. We are always interested in buying, and pay well for anything we can use. Click HERE to learn more about how to identify your Gibson banjo.

We stock banjo accessories such as strings, capos, bridges, tuners, picks, straps, cases and a large selection of instructional books and videos, all at discounted prices.
