Sound


This is the best banjo i have ever played!!!It is really rich in tone and volume.Very bright but not bright as in making your ears bleed. There is a lot of variety in sound with this banjo but mostly good for BLUEGRASS!!!!!

Reliability


the hardware is from prucha and many banjo makes uses prucha so i am guessing it will last a lifetime.the finish is still really new so i am waiting to see how it subsides. This is the banjo that i would travel on tour with or at a gig or just a jam. Very reliable.
