Loud, full, rich, mellow, like a rainbow

Sound Rating: 10


Looks and sounds fine to me. I put on new strings. :)

Setup Rating: 10


Looks like a golden castle. Glows in the dark. Beautiful Brazilian rosewood, gold and inlay. Some folks are hypnotized by the combination and get dizzy while playing it.

Appearance Rating: 10


Banjo was already ten years old when I purchased it. It looks new.

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

The Deering company contacted me to tell me that they would not warrantee this instrument in any way.

Customer Service: not rated


This is an awesome banjo--no cheap parts. :) I do like their new tailpiece (like the one on my new White Shell Laydie) better.

Overall Comments

I'm very happy to be able to rescue this banjo, even though I had to charge it and be in debt for the rest of my life. I will be recording on it soon and it is a joy to play!
