Hey @Geno!

We have discovered the post office managed to lose that one. You should have recently received an email from @Jake. We have replaced your order and made up for the lost time as well. Thank you for your support of the General Store and your patience!


Thank You


Stelling or Huber? Which is the loudest and most powerful? Or do I have to find a nice Gibson?


Depends on the banjo, my friend. I have had a Stelling in my hands that outplays and is more powerful than any Huber I’ve played.
