Where Purchased: Banjo Hut
Year Purchased: 2007
Price Paid: 436 ($US)
For an inexpensive intermediate banjo the sound is bright and loud; It blows away the Gold Tone Cripple Creek for the same money!
Sound Rating: 8
The Banjo Hut setup was great right out of the box; I just tuned it up and off I went. I've since put a new bridge on it but the initial setup was great with nice low action. The Banjo Hut does a great job!
Setup Rating: 10
There are no flaws in the appearance; the banjo is ornate for this price range with nice inlays on the neck.
Appearance Rating: 9
It's well made and should last as long as any banjo
Reliability Rating: 9
Lifetime warrany from Recording King; I haven't had to deal with them; however, my 1st banjo was destroyed by the postal service and the Banjo Hut sent another right away; I can't say enough about how happy I am with the customer service from the Banjo Hut.

The "pop" and the clear tone are exceptional in this price range.
Components Rating: 9
There is NO better banjo anywhere for this kind of money. If this is your price range then don't even think about it, just buy one!
