Sounds very good, Excellant low end and very sweet up the neck.

Sound Rating: 10
The banjo came to me very well set up form Banjoteacher.com
The action was right where I like
I did and a snuffy smith bridge and Ross from banjo teacher include a pegged snuffy smith bridge for me which I think sounds very good. I also had a zero guild nut installed which i’m Liking very much
Setup Rating: 10
I love the way this banjo looks
It is mahogany with a lacquer finish. It has hearts and flowers inlay. There are no obvious flaws.
Could you get better fit and finish for a couple thousands more you probably can. Not sure if you can get that much better sound for 2000 more. But for the money this Banjo looks and sounds great

Hardware is of good quality in my opinion. I have been giging with a Rk 36 for the pass 5 years the finish out the hardware has held up fine to a lot of playing. This will be my giging Banjo now

I think the rim and tonering are both Excellant. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish looks very good as do the inlays and headstock overlay. I would change anything
