Reliability

Only thing I don't like are the tuners. They are a little fussy. I had to tighten the screws up to get enough friction to hold them to hold in tune. Everything else is built very well.

Overall Comments

I would highly recommend this banjo. Can't believe the quality for the price. It plays very well. It requires little effort to get a whole lot of sound. One thing I've noticed is the fact I can relax my hand a little more because its so easy to get volume. Relaxed hand is one of the keys to clawhammer.

Where Purchased: Banjo Hut

Year Purchased: 2005
Price Paid: 400.00 ($US)

Sound

Banjo sounds good. I replaced the stock bridge with a Desert Rose and this made a massive change. Banjo sounds and plays wonderfully.

Sound Rating: 8

Setup

The Banjo Hut set the banjo up very good and answered many of my questions over the phone. I ordered it and received it the next day packaged very well. Bridge placement was exact and was almost in tune.

Well made instrument... The tuners maybe could be replaced and the bridge should be replaced with a little better quality bridge.
