Where Purchased: Pisgah banjo company

Year Purchased: 2018
Price Paid: $1300 ($US)


Banjo has nice old time sound with plenty of volume and sustain. I went with a fiberskyn head on a 12" pot which sounds and looks nice. I put some damping material behind the pot which improved the sound greatly.

Sound Rating: 9


Set up was perfect. I went with a 25.5 scale length which make is very comfortable to play.

Setup Rating: 10


The nicest banjo I've ever laid eyes on. The persimmon fretboard is beautiful. The Walnut looks amazing as well.

Appearance Rating: 10


It looks like it is well constructed. A banjo to be passed down through the generations.

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

My emails were answered with in the hour. I made a change late in the building process by adding a S scoop and was accommodated to the fullest. Was told the banjo would take 2-4 months to build and received it in 3 months.

I upgraded the bridge and tailpiece which is an option directly through Pisgah Banjo Company. There is also a choice for a hard or soft case. I went with the soft case and saved some money. The soft case looks to be very high quality. The banjo plays like a dream.
