Good classic clawhammer sound. I bought this primarily to play with my wife/fiddler and sound perfect for playing with a fiddle

This is the entry level banjo so appointments are basic but tasteful and well executed.
Appearance Rating: 8
This seems as reliable as it needs to be. I recently purchased but fully expect to play it for decades and I have every confidence it will go as long I want it to.

I've very pleased with my Snowbird Banjo Company Little Birdie banjo. The workmanship is first rate and the sound and play-ability are absolutely satisfying. I've had the opportunity to put my hands on a number of Snowbird's banjos and have been favorably impressed with all of them. I would unreservedly recommend Snowbird Banjo Company to anyone who wants a good banjo.
