Sounds great, loud and bright bell sound

Sound Rating: 10


Just had to tune it a bit and it was good to go, I'm fairly new but it sounds great.

Setup Rating: 10


Very nice high gloss finish, quite a pretty little Banjo

Appearance Rating: 10


Yes the hard ware seems very sturdy, I actually really like the tuners, the banjo is only 9 lbs, but it all seems very sturdy, for what I paid for it very satisfied, it should do well anywhere quite loud.

Reliability Rating: not rated

Overall Comments

Better than I hoped, I think it will do me for a few years no problem before I want to upgrade, if I do will it will be through Ross again at The Banjo If you can afford it don't go with the cheapest, used would be fine but not cheap in quality

Ordered my banjo through Ross at The Banjo, excellent service and response time to phone calls or emails beats all other sites hands down. Very friendly to deal with just like an old friend your talking to, he cares about his customers to respond so quickly, plus the little extras you get when you order through him is great, would definately recommend him to everyone.
