Where Purchased: Andy Banjo
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
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
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.
