Welcome to Beacon Banjo!

We’re the makers of Keith Banjo Tuners.

Since 1964, Keith Banjo Tuners have earned the reputation of being the best banjo tuners available. They’re easy to install yourself, or you can order them factory-installed from many of the best banjo makers. Over 30,000 pairs sold.

Bill KeithAnd now we’re proud to offer a new standard in tuning machine excellence. Our new Keith tuning pegs have the same quality of construction that has made the Keith tuners famous. There is no finer tuning peg available today, and they’re built to last a lifetime.

A message from the Keith family:

We are much saddened to have to announce that Bill Keith has left us in the early hours of October 23.

Bill’s music will live through you all – and as Bill wanted, the Beacon Banjo company will also continue its proud tradition without interruption, now in the hands of his son Martin.

On his behalf, we thank you all with all our hearts.

Claire, Charles and Martin Keith
