Pisgah  12" Custom Maple Tubaphone Banjo Reviews

Submitted by Gerald Rousseau (see all reviews from this person) on 3/11/2019

Where Purchased: Denver Folklore Center

Year Purchased: 2019
Price Paid: 1895.00 ($US)

Sound

This is my 4th Pisgah banjo and once again I am blown away by the unique characteristics of this particular model banjo.
Clear, bright, balanced with ample volume and projection.
Definitely has its own personality.

Sound Rating: 10

Setup

It had to travel from Denver to Chicago so a few minor tweaks on the bridge
position were required to perfect the intonation.
Quick and easy and the results were perfect.
I'm an intonation fanatic and I've found that Pisgah banjos are incredibly accurate and easy to maintain.
Great action and a very comfortable banjo to play!

Setup Rating: 10

Appearance

I do love the understated elegance of Pisgah banjos....just the right touch of details and beautiful woods.
Beautiful grain detail on the rim and neck on this one and similar to the Wonder model I have but with a lighter finish.
And I do love the headstock inlay and fret markers.
Aged brass hardware from Balsam Banjo Works is also my favorite

Reliability

I've owned Ome, Huss and Dalton, Chuck Lee and Deering banjos over the years..........I still have my Pisgahs and Huss and Dalton.......I think that is a testimony to the quality and consistency of Pisgah Banjos!
Without question a reliable and stout design that is very player friendly!

Reliability Rating: 10
