I'm Alan O Rourke, I have always had a great love of music, especially the banjo. My idol would have been the late great Barney McKenna, he could make a banjo sing.
I had always wanted to play banjo and after years of wishing, I finally took the plunge, I wouldn't exactly make it sing but I get a tune out.
Al's Banjo's also offers a repair service, contact us for more information.
Al's Banjos are completely handcrafted using only solid hardwoods. Every Banjo is built with extreme dedication and attention to each and every detail, offering a beautiful and unique banjo to every customer.
I offer custom builds to order. Allowing you, the customer to choose which hardwood, tone, ring, skin, action an also will personalise the pearl inlays etc.
I build the banjo that you want, exactly how you want it. There are banjos available in workshop for customers to try out. All of which are set up slightly different, which helps the customer choose what it is they want.
I also make my own "two legged" bridges which I prefer to use on my banjos.
