The Banjolit project started in 2013 with two musicians in Slovakia making good quality accessories (especially wood armrests) for themselves. When other musicians saw their work, they asked for armrests to be made for them.
Over time, Banjolit has extended its product range with priority given to assisting musicians play and practice more comfortably with useful and quality accessories. Ideas are shared with professional musicians who then go on to road test each product before being made available for sale.
The Banjolit team remains a close partnership, with the cooperation of other musicians and friends, with the aim of making and supplying quality products to amateur and professional musicians alike, adding to their comfort and ease.
