Our mission is to design, manufacture, and provide affordable, high quality American made banjo hardware to small banjo builders and banjo restorers. In addition, we strive to supply builders with quality banjo and luthier accessories as well as excellent customer service, craftsmanship, and professionalism.
Established in 2014, Founder Patrick Heavner is also the owner of Pisgah Banjos. Inspired by the overwhelming demand for sustainable banjos, Patrick set out to solve the problem of sourcing banjo hardware that is all made in the USA at a competitive price. He feels strongly about bringing manufacturing back to the USA and supporting small mom and pop machine shops across the country. Currently Balsam Banjoworks contracts with over a dozen of these small American machine shops and is constantly working on product development.
