Where Purchased: Direct from Larry Hill

Year Purchased: 2010
Price Paid: 850.00 ($US)


I play 3 finger style. I personally like a little more of a mellow sound and this fits the bill.

Sound Rating: 10


The banjo was set up for me after answering a few questions about how I like to play. I haven't had to make any changes.

Setup Rating: 10


It is a Helix cherry rim that I had stained red. The neck is a goldtone with the head cut with the Helix head shape. The red rim just stands out.

Appearance Rating: 10


Have no or see no problem with the hardware.

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

Mr. Hill talked to me on the phone for hours answering all my questions and was quick to respond to e-mails. Have not had any trouble to get repaired but as of now do not see that it would be a problem.

Overall Comments

Being an open back and light weight it has plenty of volume. So far people that have heard it seem to like the tone.
