Easy to install on my Enoch Tradesman. The ebony armrest looks like it was made for these banjos. Makes the Tradesman more comfortable to play. Highly recommended accessory.

Great sounding banjo for clawhammer playing. Nice round sound with the tubaphone tone ring. Lots of sustain.

Sound Rating: 10


Set up is just fine for right now. Set up well by 5th String.

Setup Rating: 10


Very nice banjo for the price. Inlay is well done and tasteful. Now flaws that I have been able to detect. Glossy finish looks like it is very durable and will keep the banjo looking great for years to come.

Appearance Rating: 10


Hardware appears first class for a banjo in this price range. Should be very dependable.

All components are appropriate for a banjo in this price range. No "weak-links" that I can see.
