Banjos in the Closet.....Oh, My!

YAMS is an authorized Deering Banjo and Weber Mandolin dealer. We keep several in stock - and some of our higher-end instruments are stashed in the "Banjo closet".

These instruments make an excellent investment for any player seeking a quality instrument. They will last a goooood looooooong time, and it's a rare player who will "outgrow" one of these babies.

....and special YAMS pricing makes them that much more attractive. So come on by the store and take a look!
