Fantastic sound. Strung with Aquila strings, Chicago tuning, Shure 57 through a Roland Micro Cube. I've just started using it in a weekly solo gig and am very happy with it.
Sound Rating: 10
It was a one owner banjo that had originally been purchased at Acoustic Corner...it came to me ready to play.
Setup Rating: 10
It is a Ramsey that had been well taken care of by the previous owner. The star inlays on the headstock and fretboard are simple, tasteful, and beautiful.

This banjo is very well made, and I am very happy with it. I believe that I will be playing it for a long time. It is a quality, handmade instrument.
