Overall Comments

I've very pleased with my Snowbird Banjo Company Little Birdie banjo. The workmanship is first rate and the sound and play-ability are absolutely satisfying. I've had the opportunity to put my hands on a number of Snowbird's banjos and have been favorably impressed with all of them. I would unreservedly recommend Snowbird Banjo Company to anyone who wants a good banjo.

Sound

Little Birdie has suited my music style perfectly. It has a wide variety of rich and full sounds. After nearly a year, there is still nothing I dislike about this beautifully handcrafted banjo.

Sound Rating: 10

Setup

Little Birdie was set up just right.

Setup Rating: 10

Appearance

Little Birdie is very easy on the eyes. The mother of pearl inlay is my favorite part and is always commented on and praised by others.

Appearance Rating: 10

Reliability

Little Birdie is, no doubt about it, a solid build. After a year of ownership I am very pleased with the reliability the creator built into it. I am very proud of owning a Snowbird Banjo.
