POWERFUL!!! Great tone for what I want to play on it, which is 1920-1950 jazz. It sounds great.

Sound Rating: 10


Actually, when I took the banjo out of the box, it was still in tune! Shipped all the way from California to Virginia and still in tune. Fantastic. Played like a dream right out of the box.

Setup Rating: 10


Fantastic craftmanship. People whine about banjos made in China but if this one is any indication.......people should stop whining. This banjo was beautiful and fantastic.

Appearance Rating: 10


Totally awesome hardware and finish. I have hung my 1927 B&D on the wall for now. It is RK T36 for me now when playing out.
