Hohner  N/A Banjo Reviews

Submitted by Unknown on 11/13/2002

Where Purchased: Local pawn shop

Year Purchased: 2002
Price Paid: 75 ($US) (bought USED)


It sounds pretty weak and tinny. It lacks the fullness in its tone that good banjos have.

Sound Rating: 3


I had to replace the bridge and strings after I bought it.

Setup Rating: 5


The hardware is a bit oxidized and the fingerboard was awfully worn.

Appearance Rating: 4


As crappy as this banjo is, it doesn't seem fragile. I could probably drop it and nothing would break.

Reliability Rating: 6

Customer Service

Never talked to the company or anything.

Customer Service: not rated


It's a resonator banjo, but includes nothing special.

Components Rating: 5

Overall Comments

If you're not sure if you'd like to play the banjo, I'd say go ahead and get a cheap import like this one, but even if you're halfway serious about the instrument, start with something better like a Deering Goodtime. I got this 3 months ago and I'm already desperately wanting a new one.
