Bozung  Rosine Banjo Reviews

Submitted by clydem (see all reviews from this person) on 4/19/2007

Where Purchased: eBay

Year Purchased: 2003
Price Paid: 1800 ($US) (bought USED)


This banjo has amazingly consistent sound. I really love it for Irish music but it shine's with Bluegrass as well. The sound has both bottom end and high end in a very pleasing balance. It rings with the best of them. I get compliments when I play this one.

Sound Rating: 10


Setup action was adjusted to my preference after I bought it slighlty used.
No other change was needed except I tightened the head a bit.

Setup Rating: 10


A beautiful instrument with gold plated hardware and an inlay pattern of Red Roses with green stems. The wood patterning on the resonator is as lovely as the neck inlays. A banjo this pretty should not sound so great !

Appearance Rating: 10


Built like my Stelling Staghorn, it will last much longer than I will. Have not played enough to
judge the finish but it seems very durable.

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

Have not dealt with Chris Bozung yet. He did send me a gold plated screw for the tailpiece even though I was not the original owner. Not usre about warranty service, probably won't need any.

The McPeake tone ring is appealing as a Church Bell..

Overall Comments

I love this baby, it's in serious competition with my 1982 Staghorn.
I like that it's little lighter than my Stelling.

Go visit Chris Bozung's website for a view of his fine guitars and banjos.
