Overall Comments

I first tried ordering from their website for small accessories (head and bridge).
I was satisfied so when the time came to get a new banjo, I get it from them too.
Great price, good service, fast delivery (less than a week from the online order to the delivery here in France)
Plus, they're Deering authorized dealers

Sound

Entry Level Bluegrass Banjo.
I soon switch to play clawhammer - this banjo can handle it too.
I removed the resonator and put a Remo Fyberskin and it sounds OK - but it will never be an true Open-back old-time banjo

Sound Rating: 6

Setup

Setup ok as far as I remember - a few screws were loose, nothing serious

Setup Rating: 7

Appearance

It looks ok, apart from the aluminium rim when the resonator is off.

Appearance Rating: 7

Reliability

I'm playing it a lot since a whole year, and it's still in good condition. No big issues, I think it will last many years as my backup banjo

Overall Comments

Well, nice beginner banjo for the price (it came with a gigbag). Not the worst, not the best.
Best suited for a Bluegrass player, I would have bought a Deering Goodtime or a Gold-tone if I had knew I was going to play clawhammer, but I was able to learn on it.
