I play Old Time Clawhammer banjo and this is the most perfect banjo I have ever played. It is very rich and full and feels like an extension of my fingers. Love it!

The banjo plays well as setup from Pisgah
Setup Rating: 10
The banjo has a cherry neck and rim with a persimmon fretboard and a walnut rim cap. The fit and finish are very good for the price.

The hardware is of very high quality. It is all brass and I am looking forward to the patina in the future.
Reliability Rating: 10
The manufacturer was very friendly. They were a little slow, but nothing that tested my patience. Let them take their time and they will get it right!

I love my new Pisgah Possum A scale with a persimmon tone ring. It has a rich full sound, feels good in my hands and plays like a dream. It is my first true quality instrument and I am very pleased.
