So far this banjo is the Holy Grail! Its so easy to play and sounds fantastic!!! Rings all the way up the neck, very loud and crispy!!

Setup

Geoff Stelling personally sets each banjo up before it leaves! I did take a small amount of bow out of the neck for my liking. Not a big deal.

I would highly recomend this bajo if you can afford it! I have two other top of the line banjos and this one tops them all! I love it and if it were stolen, I would round up my buds and go kick some ####!!!

Deering: Black Diamond

Submitted by cm1266 on 11/26/2008

Where Purchased: Banjo.com

Year Purchased: 2008
Price Paid: 2600.00 ($US)

Sound

This banjo is a treat to play! Really bright and loud. I also have a calico and the calico is really mellow and rings. Although this black diamond sounds really crispyl! I think anyone who buys this banjo will love it! The neck is a little smaller than the Calico which IMO is better! Really easy to play.
