Shackleton Banjo reviews: What our customers are saying

We’ve already told you about the amazing review from John Dow but we wanted to let you what other Shackleton Banjo customers are saying.

We’re thrilled with this feedback and so, so happy that the first Shackleton Banjo customers love this instrument just as much as we do. We’ll leave you with these Shackleton Banjo reviews.

“My Shackleton arrived today and it was well worth the wait.  It looks and sounds fantastic.  I love the burr oak rim, and even the Schertler tuners!  It is very well finished and so light.  I wasn’t sure how the frailing scoop would look but it too has been beautifully done.  All this and made in Norfolk.  Bootiful! I am very pleased to be one of the first owners of this new, British-made banjo.  It is exactly what I was looking for.”
“Dear Simon, I just wanted to thank you and the team for the (Shackleton) banjo. It is beautifully made. I have been so proud to be a very small part in this project and take my hat off to you and all your very skilful craftsmen for this wonderful banjo. I think Ernest Shackleton would have been very proud!”
“My Shackleton arrived Monday evening, it is a thing a real beauty. Simple lines, balanced, amazingly light, the tone and sound it makes, even in the hands of this fat fingered, clumsy beginner, is superb. It has been definitely worth the wait (apologies for my drink fuelled “chase” the other week). It has been really exciting to be a small part of this project, so thank you to the team for all the hard work, passion and commitment for pulling this off. In terms of customer satisfaction, I’ll quote another Norwich based legend by simply saying “back of the net!”
“To call the banjo amazing is an understatement. I’m having trouble expressing how fantastic this instrument is. It’s beyond beautiful in its simplicity. The sound is clear and crisp, with a bright ringing tone. I can’t keep a smile off my face while I play. This is the first nice banjo I’ve ever had, and I can’t believe how much my playing has improved. I’m likewise very excited to have been a small part of the creation of this banjo – it’s not just another banjo off the shelf; it’s the 12th Shackleton banjo lovingly made by hand (for me!), and now my family and I are singing and playing and creating memories!”
“I just wanted to say a big ‘thank you’ again for my new Shackleton banjo and let you know that I’m really pleased with it. It looks, plays and sounds great. Congratulations!”
“The Shackleton banjo arrived on Monday and we are VERY pleased with it. It was bought as a present for my wife Lynn. She took it to her lesson yesterday and her teacher was extremely impressed with it’s build quality, appearance and sound, he may be ordering one for himself. Thank you for an excellent banjo it was worth waiting for.”
“I just received my Shackleton banjo today. I am so very, very impressed. I feel like I have a treasure in my possession. It looks and sounds stunning and arrived after its big trip across the pond almost perfectly in tune! Thank you Simon and the Shackleton team. You are amazing!!”
“Just letting you know that the banjo arrived safely yesterday afternoon, its absolutely beautiful, we’re thrilled with it.”
