Solid instrument, beautiful embellishments, instructions

Julian801, 07.01.2015
I bought this banjo on suspicion because the other Harley Benton Banjo of the 5th vocal vertebra was criticized. With the BJ-55Pro, the vocal vertebra is firmly anchored in the neck and does not move, so what was improved.

Optics:
When we start above, the traditional backward-mounted ventricles on the head plate immediately fall, very beautiful! The headboard itself is decorated with a beautiful and impeccable mother-of-pearl inlay. Also the handleboard inlays are all processed neatly, no crevices and edges.
The back of the "Bodies" is beautifully varnished in a kind of sunburst.
The armrest also has a milled pattern.
Design and processing are so top, could not find any flaws.

Performance:
Since I'm just starting with banjo, I can not say anything about the mood of the fur from the factory, but as a drummer and guitarist, I can say to the fur myself and the dressing thing: The fur is from Remo and in the usual proficiency.
The training of the Banjos is pleasant, perhaps a bit too high at the upper part of the Bund, but it should not be a Speedmetal guitar, but a clean sounding banjo, so it is still okay.
The banjo is by the way already delivered on delivery and the bridge is in the right place, after the voices one can practice immediately.

Sound:
To the sound I can say nothing due to lack of comparisons. I like the sound of the banjo. He is loud enough to play in an acoustic band and is not disturbed by wobbling parts anywhere on the instrument.

Conclusion:
Good, solid, beautiful instrument for getting started or changing from the first banjo.
For beginners, who are looking for an instrument in this price class, you should offer exactly this banjo as a set with belt, fingerpicks, suitcase, clamp tune and small instructions for tuning the coat (not everyone was previously drummer) and the maintenance of the instrument.
