Bishline: Walnut Hierloom

Submitted by single malt on 12/10/2009

Where Purchased: banjo.com

Year Purchased: 2009
Price Paid: 2500 ($US)

Sound

This banjo has an astounding sound. Rings like a bell with good lows and highs along the fretboard.

Sound Rating: 10

Setup

As usual banjo.com set ups banjos perfectly. The head was tight and, the bridge in the proper place, the angle of the tailpiece brought an ieal sound from the strings.The action beat. Very nicely done.

Setup Rating: 10

Appearance

The Heirloom has a classical beauty. The mother of pearlis of the best quality. It is simple but beautiful. The cover of the rod up the headstock has a beautiful shape andelegant colour. The design up the neck is really original and distinguished

Appearance Rating: 10

Reliability

Very new yet, but it sound terrific. Has nothing to envy to my other banjos of a much higher price.

Customer Service

The ordering was extremely tiring. No order acknowledgement, no answers to my emails. It took weeks to get any respomse.
When I thought that I would never get the banjo, somebody from backoffice seemed to notice that they had a customerwaiting.
The banjo arrived with severely damaged lack (neck). No answers whatsoever to my reclamation. FQMS used to be much better.

Overall Comments

I learned more in one month (Beginner'^s Banjo Course) than in the first three years by myself. As in Europe there are almost no teachers , Harold was the best choice I could have.
The arrangements are very demanding but the course guarantees banjo proficiency very quickly.
On the top, Harold is extremely friendly.
