Sound

This sounds great in a jam or rehearsal. But when you get it on a mic it is a MONSTER

Sound Rating: 10

Setup

Perfect out of the box.

Setup Rating: 10

Appearance

Its mohogany with a straight grain maple neck. Its more of a brown than red. Distressed. It will fool alot of people into thinking it from the 1930s

Appearance Rating: 10

Reliability

Also distressd hardware. It looks like an 80 year old banjo and its two months old.

Reliability Rating: 10

Overall Comments

The great attribute of Yates banjos is that they are ALL consistently GREAT. I have yet to hear or play one that I wouldn't love to have. That's the only maker that I can say that for.
