Banjo Reviews

Review from Directional Mike
First-time banjo long time guitar player
Pros: Consistent, fun to play, good feel, rich sound, stays in tune.
Cons: None
Best Uses: Practicing
"I'm new to the banjo, but I know something about string instruments being a long time guitar player and this banjo was perfect for me. It feels solid and it stays in tune, and the tuning is consistent up and down the neck (a problem with low-end guitars). The action is also good up and down the fretboard. It's difficult to hold without a strap so I would recommend getting one along with your banjo. If you're going to carry it around you'll need some sort of case or gig bag for protection."
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Review from D from the very south

Cons: None
Best Uses: Jamming, practicing
"It's a really good stuff for beginners. It sounds very brightly as the more expensive banjos.
It is well constructed, and it feels good to play. "
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
