Fitch  Custom Archtop Banjo Banjo Reviews

Submitted by Casey (see all reviews from this person) on 5/26/2008

Where Purchased: Fitch Banjos

Year Purchased: 2008
Price Paid: 3,200 ($US)


The sound is just great!! Very loud but also can be played very soft for studio work. The tone is the best I've heard from any archtop model!! Not to tiny but full rich tone which is what the sound engineers like to hear when they mike a banjo.

Sound Rating: 10


I've made no changes the setup is just great.

Setup Rating: 10


since this banjo is a custom model everything I wanted in a banjo Cliff Fitch did for me. The hardware is a combo of nickle and Gold plate. words just don't do it justice go to my banjo hangout homepage to see pictures of this wonderful looking banjo.

Appearance Rating: 10


I've only had it a few weeks but so far it's performed very very well. it is my first choice when doing studio work. Since I'm not a performer but studio musician I don't play on stage very much but this banjo is more then ready for any road work!

Reliability Rating: 10

I've played Gibsons mostly and at first I was going to get another Gibson but I always wanted to have a custom banjo built just for me and this banjo not only sounds better then most Gibsons I've played but looks awsome!!!!
