A PERSONAL NOTE ABOUT THIS BANJO : In the advertisement I put mint condition because this banjo has not been used for more than about approximately 25 hours. I bought it with the intention of learning banjo but found it wasn’t the instrument for me. You can see the membrane or “drum” on which there is no wear. This is a professional level banjo that comes with many accessories:
a high quality case, a Snark clip-on tuning instrument, “Little Maggie” pics, a beginner training course with a CD, special strings for a mellower tone, a custom bridge also for a deeper tone (and the original bridge), plus a secure banjo stand, and an authentic handmade leather strap from Ireland. I see this banjo advertised frequently for $1599 and on Amazon for $1542, without the accessories.
A review that I found:
The RK-R75 is all you'll ever need in a banjo and can't be beat in this price range. It's frankly not fair to the more expensive banjos to have a banjo you can purchase with this type of quality, look and TONE for this price.
The R 75 is a banjo that I would not hesitate to play professionally, take on the road and do it all with. If you get one of these you will never need to buy another one.. It has a one piece flange, flathead tone ring, presto tailpiece, Flying eagle fingerboard inlay, the neck feels great and produces deep tone. The R 75 has the cool mastertone-style Flying Eagle peghead design and inlay that Don Reno, Bill Emerson and JD Crowe popularized.
