well finally in the market for my new top line banjo what is going to be,ive love my sierra so where do i begin ive read as many reviews on this site as possible,some of the banjos not available this side of the pond,and price is mitagating factor, some very forthright comments , an absolute minefield , i hate this brand or this is the best, was driven crazy. so i listened to every banjo i could in live sessions.
Then i start thinking what do I WANT from the banjo,depth of tone power,versatility,looks?maybe allof them.So onto folk of the wood and listen to mickey playing em all,yeah,confusion reigns
i want all of them , but can only buy one JAYSUS.
Go to the stores play as many as you can,yep went to london tried em all Sleep on it,then one begins to tug at you creeping unbidden into your head,standing out you push your other brands to the twilight zone,you home in then ,all other banjos well just sound like banjos.Go for it go on , ok phone the store talk to the owner make him confince you you made the right choice ,ignoring the fact that he could not be biased ???.
Dammit order it, ok its it the post ,on the way

got it sounds brilliant ,kill any son of a bitch who criticises yor choice,they havent a clue,this is the best the greatest,caress it pick it up cradle it in your arms ,picks on ,in your lap,fingers on the frets a little roll,.This is heaven the sound everything,worth every penny,
LET HER ROLL
