Buzzard Mountian Banjos: Custom

Submitted by Irishbanjo on 9/5/2010

Where Purchased: Buzzard Mountain Banjos

Year Purchased: 2010
Price Paid: Don't Remember historic exchange rates / currency converter


The sound is exactly what I was looking for. I had some very specific sound requirements and Neil was able to put everything I wanted into the tone and sound.

Sound Rating: 10


The set up was exactly what I had described to Neil when I ordered the banjo. I didn't have to change a thing.

Setup Rating: 10


I asked for a very detailed headstock and inlay and I got exactly what I wanted and then some. I asked for a barebones fret board but a custom headstock and he made my image come to life.

Appearance Rating: 10


The hardware is great and takes a beating when I am on stage. It's the banjo I take on stage and don't even think about bringing my old one as a backup.

Reliability Rating: 10

Customer Service

Neil gave me great customer service and keep me up to date on what he was doing and what the next step was. I really appreciated the personal touch and it took all of the worry out of the purchase.

I asked for an openback banjo that would be as loud or louder as a resonator banjo for working on stage with plugged in musicians. The pot and tone ring combination are perfect. The banjo has volume, but it also has great tone. I can sit at home and play it with a light touch or get on stage and let it rip.

Components Rating: 10

Overall Comments

I am so happy with my purchase that I am already asking about another custom banjo purchase.
