Gold Tone  Banjola - Pat Cloud Delux Banjo Reviews

Submitted by Seth Henry (see all reviews from this person) on 8/14/2007

Where Purchased: Folk of the Wood

Year Purchased: 2007
Price Paid: 1000 ($US)


Very rich and mellow. I use mostly for 3 finger classical and jazz flavors. The stereo pick ups are quiet and so far feedback free. Used with a Roland AC-60 amp and a Boss DD-20 Giga-Delay. Primo for getting way out there.

Sound Rating: 10


Factory set up was done properly. I had them add strap peg and 5th string nails at 7 and 9.

Setup Rating: 10


Since this is there top end model. I requested from FOTW to contact Goldtone and pick out the sweetest one or I'd send it back in a heartbeat. Beautiful wood and inlay. Finish is flawless.

So far good stuff. The tuners ehhh they're good but I've used better. I'll play it anytime anywhere... except in the rain.

Overall Comments

If you enjoy playing mellow and intricate, the Banjola PC model is outstanding. The tonal flavor make it easy on the ears... very good for the soul.
I still enjoy my Mastertone but the Banjola PC has a soft edge that really flows.
