Gold Tone  IT200ATR Banjo Reviews

Submitted by neilpaxman (see all reviews from this person) on 9/25/2007

Where Purchased: Andy Banjo

Year Purchased: 2007
Price Paid: 375 (UK £) historic exchange rates / currency converter


Nice and plunky, but with the heavy strings and resonator, has plenty of bite

Sound Rating: 8


As always with Andy, not only well set up (just the bridge to seat - and he tapes the head to show positioning for GDAE) but well packaged and adaptable

Setup Rating: 9


Bog standard to look at, but as it is built by Andy in the UK, has good quality fittings and all the essentials are bullet proof

Appearance Rating: 9


Built to outlast me...

Reliability Rating: 9

Customer Service

Ever helpful, quick to give advice when needed, and fast delivery

Customer Service: 10


All weaker standard parts are replaced before shipping, and the result shows

Components Rating: 9

Overall Comments

Would recommend for anyone starting Irish Tenor. This is Andys bespoke special which comes in below the IT250 model, but has everything needed without being flashy.

Overall Rating: 9
