tolles Banjo in Sachen Klang, Optik, Verarbeitung
Multidilettant, 28.04.2021
ich spiele seit ca. 3 Jahren Tenorbanjo (nach Jahrzehnten Violine und Gitarre), für den Hausgebrauch und in einer Musikgruppe. Würde mich in etwa als fortgeschrittenen Anfänger (Freizeitmusiker) in Sachen Banjo bezeichnen.
Nun sollte es unbedingt noch ein 5-String Blugrass Banjo sein und da bin ich nach einigem Anhören und Anfassen beim Richwood RMB-905 hängen geblieben. Es gibt teurere sowie billigere Banjos, aber ich habe keines in der Hand gehabt, welches für mich ein vergleichbares Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis gehabt hätte. Bei deutlich günstigeren Banjos reichten mir Klang und Verarbeitung nicht ganz, bei doppelt teuren war der Klang keinesfalls signifikant besser.
Ich habe nichts gefunden, was ich bemängeln würde.
Vielleicht lässt sich die Saitenlage noch ein Minimum niedriger einstellen, es muss aber nicht sein, es ist auch so sehr gut spielbar.
Das Banjo ist recht schwer (im Vergleich zu meinem open back Tenorbanjo), was sich aber eher positiv auf den Klang auswirkt, es ist ein voller Klang mit einem langen Nachhall.
Verarbeitung und Verzierungen machen einen guten Eindruck.
Auch die Bundreinheit.
Der vorhandene Metalltonring ist in dieser Preislage wohl eher unüblich und daher ein Pluspunkt dieses Richwood. Er dürfte deutlich am Klang beteiligt sein.
Das Spielen und das Üben macht einfach Spaß.
Am liebsten hätte ich das gleiche Modell noch als Tenorbanjo, was es ja gibt, aber man kann nicht alles haben.
Also insgesamt ein guter Griff in Sachen Preis-Leistung, den ich nicht bereue.
