Fitch  Firestorm Banjo Reviews

Submitted by jebmd (see all reviews from this person) on 12/13/2007

Where Purchased: Cliff Fitch

Year Purchased: 2007
Price Paid: $3000 ($US)


Excellent bluegrass banjo, Nice deep growl on the forth string, has that bell ring quality on the first and fifth strings that I love. Good pop all the way up the neck. The FF rim opens up the more I play it. I think it will become even more of a monster in the next 12 months.

Sound Rating: 10


Perfect, very low action with an 11/16 bridge. No changes needed to be made.

Setup Rating: 10


Work of art. Extremely shaded curly Maple, looks as good as it sounds. Superb fit and finish.

This banjo has all the top notch components. Sullivan FF rim, Blaylock tone ring, Keith tuners, Cox resonator and a David Wadsworth hand-crafted bridge. I think I like the way all the top quality parts and Cliff's craftsmanship come together to form this beautiful instrument.
