We have all been there…wanting to travel with our banjo but unsure of what to do to make sure it gets there safely. What happens if the “gorillas” are working the day we ship it or hand it over to the airlines? You know, they love to throw and jump on things!
Here are a few tips that we hope can break the “gorilla blues.”
TRAVELING ON AN AIRPLANE:
Traveling on a plane is a common occurrence these days. But, traveling with a musical instrument always carries with it some amount of concern on the part of the owner.
SHIPPING YOUR BANJO TO YOUR NEW LOCATION:
While this may seem like a nuisance, it is often the easiest way to get the banjo safely to your final destination. Shipping services like UPS and FedEx are used to shipping big parcels and you can insure your banjo for full replacement cost in case the “dreaded gorillas” are working that day.
TRAVELING BY CAR:
While traveling by car is easier, it still has its own set of hurdles to contend with.The general rule of thumb is if you are not comfortable in an environment, then you banjo will not be either.
