Eagle Appointed Huber Banjos UK Dealership

We are delighted to be appointed the UK exclusive retailer for Steve Huber Banjos. Meticulously built in the Tennessee, USA workshops of Steve Huber to the exacting standards of the pre war Mastertone banjos. The choice of all standard models and custom models will be  available for our customers to order on a 120 day delivery basis. Please follow this link to the Huber web site for more details and technical information on all Huber Banjo Models.

With the advent of Gibson USA no longer making banjos, Steve Huber Banjos are now even more desirable, collectable and more than fill the void for players wanting and needing the playability, drive and perfection of a pre-war flat head banjo.
