Sound


I play Blugrass Scrugs style, rich full sound but not so bright that you lose the individual notes when playing fast, the intonation is spot on at any point on the neck, good sound when playing soft and quiet or when playing hard and loud, comfortable to play with a fantastic Blugrass sound.

Overall Comments


Woodwork and setup by Griffin Banjos UK. Titanium metalwork including tone ring by Syd Payn Uk. owner of Titan Banjos, Tel:- 44 151 424 5754 UK.
I have now sold my Huber, Stelling and ODE banjos as I think this one can't be beaten for sound and quality of build, but You do have to pay a premium for such an instrument
