I'm a novice player, but compared to the entry level Lero I had, this banjo sounds great! Very full rick tone and quite loud.
Sound Rating: 8
I had the local music store set it up, and I'm not sure what was done, but the action is good and its easy to play.
Setup Rating: 8
This banjo is approximately 25 years old and bought from the original owner. The first thing I noticed was how solid it was.It is made in Japan and I understand that the quality was still quite good for this instrument.

I have no experience with upper end banjos, but this seems like a real solid instrument to me--good quality tuning pegs, good wood etc No cracks or surface flaws of any kind

For the price I paid, the equivalent new banjo would be an entry level Korean instrument...I believe that this is much better [ it makes my Lero seem like a toy]
