Eucalypt: Custom Open Back

Submitted by ddouyard on 4/30/2011

Where Purchased: direct

Year Purchased: 2004
Price Paid: ~1500 ($US)


I live in the US and met Roger and Ann while on a business trip to Brisbane, loved their banjos and ordered an openback. the banjo was shipped direct and arrived in great condition. the sound is crisp and clean. I have had many compliments on how it plays and the quality of the sound. I have nothing but good things to say about the banjo.

Sound Rating: 10


the banjo was shipped in its case and played beautifully with only minor tuning right out of the case. not bad for shipping half way around the world. I have not had to do any changes other than change the strings regularly and tighten the head.

Setup Rating: 10


the quality and workmanship is outstanding and the australian woods reallly make this unique. it is truely a beautiful instrument to look at and play

Appearance Rating: 10


everything on this banjo is high quality. i do have one tuner that is a little loose but this does not affect the ability to tune the sting or keep it tune. in the last 7 years i have only had to change strings. i have used both medium and light strings with equal effect. i have used the banjo for on stage solos and it is my banjo of choice among the others i own.

Reliability Rating: 9
