Thank you for carrying small thumb picks. I’ve had a hard time finding them! What a difference it makes to not have your pick flopping around!!

Congratulations on your new retail store, Ben, and I sure hope you all do well. Have always enjoyed your instructional videos, as well as your tunes with the Purple Hulls. The RK-R35 & 36 demos were very good, and my latest banjo is a Gold Tone BG250F, it sounds like the RKs. Thanks for all you do in the music world…gk

This give away is an exciting event, and what is just as exciting is you guys have put together a place where we can purchase quality products at reasonable prices. We know everything you have to sell, you would buy and use yourselves, and are knowledgeable good people to deal with.

I’m 68 and just in my infancy in learning to pick the banjo. I’ve ordered some things from your site and appreciated the promptness to respond and the quick delivery. Been watching your YouTubes and have gotten to know your web site over the last couple years. Your humor and insight into banjo has made learning very enjoyable! Thanks for all the help.

Saw The Purple Hulls at Bloomin’ Bluegrass last fall and again at BABA. LOVE those girls music.
Question: Why are the videos flipped? I can’t read the shirts from behind my monitor.

I think it’s pretty cool you are giving so much away! I have a lifetime membership already and think your lessons are spot on. However, right now I am focusing on clawhammer banjo and have built two banjos myself! Good luck to everyone!

Although I’ve been learning to play traditional/Americana songs for years…it’s only since retirement that I’ve made much effort to become a better performer. And your lessons have been a big part of that. Can’t thank you enough

Ben & Jake,

Guys, this is soooooo cool! I really don’t mind if I don’t win. It is a celebration of the wonderful General Store launch!

Congrats to you both… and I am so thankful with my new Eastman MD-315 Mandolin – proudly purchased from the new Store.

I feel like this is OUR site, OUR store run by OUR teacher! These good folks are more than worthy of OUR support.

Do yourself a favor & make a purchase – you won’t be disappointed!

Finally, thanks Ben for posting the selection videos too – for those of us who can’t join live. I enjoyed watching – even knowing my name has not been selected YET!

Good Luck to the Grand ole Store’s SUCCESS! We appreciate having you recommend, quality products & services available to us!

God Bless y’all!
