The tone is amazing. I like the set up a little looser than most and I must say, it has the sweetest and fullest sound I could ask for. The tone is great for my blend of Scruggs, melodic and stingle string stye.

I have a custom VRB-3 with the Huber Deluxe pattern ingraving and gold plating and tulip amber tuning buttons. I also got the flying eagle pattern on the headstock and neck of the banjo. It looks beautiful.

Whether you are a trad player or a progressive player, I think you will love these banjos! I loved the VRB-3 so much, I sold my other banjo to buy another Huber (Granada).
Only things negative I could say about it is I wish the neck was a little wider. I got the wider neck but it could be a little wider. I did get the radius fret board as well and I really like it.
Overall, I would suggest this banjo to anyone. The tone is unbelievable. I have not played a banjo that has a better tone than my VRB-3.
