Folk Instruments

At Bonners Music, we have a wonderful collection of folk instruments which are beautifully designed and full of character and warmth. Have a look through the different options and, whether you are just starting up or are a seasoned professional, you'll be able to find the perfect instrument to inspire hours and hours of blissful playing.

There is firstly a great selection of banjos from Gold Tone Banjos, Ozark Banjos and Pilgrim. Some of the models such as the Gold Tone BU-1 Concert Banjo, the Gold Tone AC-4 Tenor Open Back 4 String Banjo and the Ozark 2102G 5 String Open Back Banjo also come with gig bags and so are ideal to take with you on the road.

We also have a huge collection of ukuleles available. These range from the models from Vintage that would serve as a lovely little gift all the way up to Tanglewood Tiare TWT17E Tenor Cutaway Ukulele, which captures the essence of the authentic South Pacific sound. Ozark in addition provide a fantastic selection of mandolins, all of which are traditional in style and beautiful to see and to hear.

Then, for the top players in the market for top of the range instruments to match, take a look at the stunning resonant guitars that we have from the likes of Gretsch, Ozark and Tanglewood. Although these are top of the range products, as with many of the models in this collection, you will still be able to find some great deals!
