Submitted by slickpicker on 12/9/2008

Where Purchased: Internet

Year Purchased: 2006
Price Paid: 1000 ($US) (bought USED)

Sound

This banjo to me has a better sound than any other banjo I have ever played. It has "my" sound as I call it. Im very pleased with it. Perfect growl on bass and just the right pop on the treble side.

Sound Rating: 10

Setup

Head needed to be tightened a little. Had never been played since it was bought and had all original stuff...even the strings.

Setup Rating: 9

Appearance

Very solid looking banjo. Not a overly decorated banjo by any means. Another reason why I like it alot. Simple and nice looking.

Appearance Rating: 9

Reliability

Perfect hardware.

Reliability Rating: 10
