CanJoe Company Prices 2011

In the topic threads below, is a topic about “how to order” a CanJoe Company canjo. EVERY CanJoe Company canjo instrument made to be sold is custom designed & built to suit the desires of the owner/buyer. CanJoe Company instruments are the original, “real deal” items and are NOT copies of others now cropping up elsewhere in the market. The CanJoe Company, in business since 1994, provides only the finest, highest quality in craftsmanship and accuracy of each build and WILL NOT compromise. The first thing needed to know before ordering is what ‘can’ will be used. For the best quality of sound, the aluminum drink cans are most preferred. Food grade steel and tin cans DO NOT provide either quality sound or make for a more durable instrument. Spam cans DO NOT provide quality sound either and will not be offered or used on a CanJoe Company product. Please do not confuse other products with similar design concepts as comparative to anything the CanJoe Company offers. There is no other product on the market ANYWHERE that comes close. CanJoe Company instruments are truly handcrafted works of art, signed & dated and come with a lifetime warranty. The full sized CanJoe Company “deluxe” canjo instrument starts at $60 plus shipping, handling and any applicable taxes. Premium models and special custom orders are priced upon request. The best way to order is to call 423-323-0174 for details.

About CanJoe*John

CanJoe*John began making and marketing the authentic 'canjoe' instruments from their origin. Introduced to them by their creator, Herschel R. Brown, in the early 1990s, John, from the beginning, helped Herschel manufacture them in Herschel's shop. John relocated back to his home state of TN in 1993 and continued, initially with Herschel's direct assistance, to make and market them, establishing the licensed sole proprietorship, the CanJoe Company, in 1994. As a professional musician CanJoe*John became billed as the "world's most unique musician, playing the world's most unique musical instrument, the canjoe" (aka, canjo). Always with his own personal canjoe instrument in hand he was awarded the adult "2007 Male Bluegrass Instrumentalist of the Year" by the North American Country Music Association International (NACMAI), and now having the distinction of being the first and only canjoe picker to ever perform on the Grand Ole Opry, has literally taken the one-stringed thing to the outer limits! CanJoe*John is a master craftsman and artist who designs, creates and crafts these instruments as custom works of musical fine art for those who respect and require the best of the best, truly genuine, original one-stringed musical instruments. He can be reached via email at, or by phone at 423-612-4320.

    Some recent comments from those who chose the CanJoe Company:
    “I just got home from work and found a package containing a canjo. The workmanship is superb and I love the stain and color combination with the Coke can; better than my expectations. Thanks so much and I had no problems with the packaging.
    Once I receive my invitation to play at the Grand Ol Opry, I’ll send you a CD playing a few selections from your book!!”… Thanks again, John Malinowski (Jacksonville, FL)

    “I borrowed a friend’s “canjo” made by someone else and then called you to order one of my own. WOW!… What a difference! The totally cool “Throw Back” Mt Dew canjo you sent to me plays ‘sa-weeet’ and is 150% better quality than the junk I gladly gave back to my friend. You’ll be getting some more orders from me, for sure!” ~ Marty Gordon (Hot Springs, Arkansas)
