Thomann Cyberstore

First time with Thomann, a bit worried after reading one or two bad reviews but have to say they were very good. Great price for my RK025BR banjo, well packaged and delivered in 3 days from Germany to Stockport,UK. Wouldn't hesitate to use again.Only reason I didn't give a ten score, is because when I rang to enquire as to availability, the person in the guitar/banjo department wasn't much help.

well it looks like I've had exactly the same experience as Alasdair G, only on mine there were more issues than I was prepared to take so I sent it back. It appears from my experience this seller sends out substandard goods and expects you to keep them. Once again a what do you expect for the money attitude and a refusal to accept there was anything wrong to avoid paying postal costs. Never again. I DO NOT recommend this store. Enough said.
I have rated a 1 as there is no option for 0

Well, I must be missing something here, because after reading a lot of the reviews about this mute, I seem to be the only one who isn't happy with it. Firstly, it doesn't stay on.Tighten it up lightly and it will vibrate loose, tighten hard and the nylon screws bend and it still loosens. While it does stay on, I'm disappointed with the amount of muting(still quite loud), and there are all sorts of issues with the tone and tuning. Without it everything's ok(well almost).I am sure I must be doing something wrong, or am I? so any ideas would be welcome. I am a newbie and trying to learn but using this mute is not doing my confidence any good. Without it I seem to be happier with my practice although the neighbours aren't.HELP!
