Great! Beautiful deep sound.

Sound Rating: 8


Eric sent it set up with nylgut minstrel strings, and sent along 3 different bridges to manage humidity swings. It's a great playing banjo.

Setup Rating: 9


Beautiful maple neck, great finish. Eric makes a bracket model, too, but he actually recommended the tackhead. It's beautiful.

Appearance Rating: 9


I'm still breaking it in, but it's really well built. No worries.

Reliability Rating: 9

Customer Service

Eric and Donna are great people to deal with: efficient and friendly. I had a great experience dealing with them. I love this banjo, so that part of it is easy, but dealing with Eric and Donna as people just made me happy.

Overall Comments

I play mostly bluegrass banjo, but I wanted a fretless, and because the price was so easy, I treated myself to a banjo that I play just for me. This banjo is really super. Great sound, great feel. I love it. I don't know minstrel banjos very well, and I'm sure there are more expensive banjos that may have this one beat, although not when taking the price into consideration. I don't use 10s, so under qualification this banjo gets my highest rating.
