Nate Calkins: Tackhead #21

Submitted by coletrickle_2 on 8/29/2009

Where Purchased: Used

Year Purchased: 2009
Price Paid: Don't Remember (bought USED) historic exchange rates / currency converter

Sound

Fabulous tone. Microtones are evenly expressed. Rich, open sound that is perfect for solo playing. I've had it really low and just below G and just about everywhere in between and it sounds great.

Sound Rating: 10

Setup

Bought this used, but it was perfectly set up when I picked it up. I'm not sure how much it had been played before I got it, but it was in tune when I went over to the sellers home to see it.

Setup Rating: 9

Appearance

Simple and perfect. This banjo looks handmade in a good way. Fit and finish are right on and the handmade bridge and floating tailpiece compliment it well.

Appearance Rating: 10

Reliability

Not too much hardware on this bad boy. Violin friction pegs, tacks, skin head. I don't anticipate doing much more then playing the heck out of it.

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

Customer Service: 10

Components

Few components. Nice skin head. Handmade tailpiece and bridge.
