For what it is you'd be hard pressed to find anything better.
JoeKahno, 17.07.2020
This is my first banjo. i started out playing violin in my youth and more recently played mountain dulcimer. My goal here was to buy the least expensive instrument that still had a core of quality materials, properly assembled. My first upgrades will probably be adding an arm rest and some better tuners. Neither is urgently needed. After resolving a couple of minor set up issues it plays well right out of the box. There are other vendors advertising "beginner bundles" for about the same price that include a yard long list of features and accessories. In order to do this they shave the quality of everything in the box down to the absolute, inescapable, minimum. This manufacturer has taken a more rational approach. Good materials and build quality then keep the price low with a limited feature list. That's all i need or wish to pay for at this time.

Perfect starter banjo
KarlSmyth, 15.05.2020
I bought this in a spur of the moment purchase. I’d never played any instrument in my life, and had always wanted to learn to play banjo. I didn’t want to spend too much, yet feared a €111 banjo may end up being a waste of money. I was wrong. The sound is great, it’s been easy to pick up and start learning, and it’s brought great joy to me. One month on I see massive progress, and I’m now browsing for “Better” banjos - just don’t tell that to my wife!

Unbelievable sound for the money!
Edgar Blackdagger, 12.02.2018
This is my first banjo, I play classical and other guitars since I was 8 and I am a guitar teacher, so I've played with a lot of instruments.
This one was perfect right out of the box, unbelievable sound, clear, loud and bell sounding but still very full sounding.
I'm not sure about the bridge, because after a week, even after I've fine tuned the head tension, seems to be a bit sunk in there.
The hardware is as you'd expect, totally useable and gigable, you can also use it as a backup touring banjo.

It may need a bit of fine tuning and setup, but once you get it there it sounds waaaay more expensive than it is.
