Sound

This banjo has a full, mellow, and warm sound. The 5th string is one of the best sounding I've heard. Really great tone over the 19th fret and the head.

Sound Rating: 9

Setup

The banjo was set up when I received it. The action is a smidgen high but does affect playin at all until way up on the neck. Great clearance for clawhammer.

Setup Rating: 8

Appearance

This banjo is very easy on the eyes. Blank fretboard with just a star inlay on the head stock and the heal. No frailing scoop but a stylish 5th string thumb notch that works great. Maple pin strip up the back of the neck

Appearance Rating: 9

Reliability

The hardware is shiny new and good to go. I have performed with this banjo a least a couple times and month since receiving it and it always plays great even with the thin skin head.

Reliability Rating: 9

Customer Service

Jeremy is very helpful and knowledgable individual who loves banjos and has spent a great deal studying them as well. He was very helpful and maintained constant communication. Jeremy provides a lifetime warranty for all his instruments.

Customer Service: 9

Components

Everything is good to go. I have had no problems with any components on the banjo.

Overall Comments

All and all a great banjo from a good builder. I hope to see more of his banjos around. Only thing I didn't like was he sticker/business card on the inside of the pot. I always prefer a logo burned or engraved into the dowel. Removal of the sticker was easy.
