Great value for money
Hillbilly Baz, 17.05.2018
As my bass guitars and acoustics are all fender I decided to go for this Dean banjo as it looks better and was much cheaper than the fender rustler. Straight out of the box it was easily set up (measure distance from nut to 12th fret and bridge should be positioned on skin same distance from 12th fret as nut is). No sign of neck needing adjusted at the minute as no buzz when fretting and no warp evident. Great sound and will provide the banjo sound we require in the band for a couple of songs.

Gutes Banjo für kleines Geld
Eisenhertz, 26.02.2018
Zuerst möchte ich mich bei dem Thomann Mitarbeiter Bernhard Dreyer bedanken für die kompetente Beratung, Auswahl und Voreinstellung des Banjos, es war für das Budget die richtige Wahl-
Ich spiele gelegentlich mit einem philharmonischen Orchester Stummfilmmusik, daher brauchte ich ein Banjo mit grösserem Range.
Nach Erhalt habe ich einige notwendige Verbesserungen vorgenommen, die man wahrscheinlich in dem Preisrahmen nicht unbedingt erwarten kann, ich aber jedem nur empfehlen kann.
Der Sattel wurde gegen Knochen getauscht, besser gekerbt, der Steg kompensiert und tiefer gelegt und dadurch eine wesentlich bessere Stimmbarkeit bis in hohe Lagen erreicht. Das Tieferlegen wurde notwendig, da ich die Fellspannung deutlich erhöht habe, was dem Sound sehr geholfen hat. Der letzte Einsatz bei einem
Buster Keaton - Film, den der Komponist der Musik selbst dirgiert hat, - einer der keine Gitarrenbanjos mag - war sehr zufriedenstellend, da er meinte, das sei das erste Gitarrenbanjo das soundmässig an ein Tenor heranreicht. Insofern kann ich es nur empfehlen, zu dem Preis allemal.

Gioie e dolori
masco, 23.04.2018
Una nota di merito va senza dubbio ai materiali e alla costruzione (ma non all'assemblaggio, vedremo dopo il perché), ottime meccaniche che reggono bene l'accordatura e si dimostrano anche ben precise.
Bel manico, forse un po' troppo chitarristico, ma si dimostra estremamente comodo e scorrevole.
Il suono in sé è decisamente buono, ma assomiglia forse un po' troppo a quello di una chitarra , complice forse un sustain elevato ove mi aspetterei un suono più chiuso e secco. Forse con delle corde differenti, un po' più fini, e qualche regolazione si potrebbe riuscire ad ottenere un suono più "banjistico".

E veniamo ora alle dolenti note.

1) Il ponte era smontato e se ne andava tranquillo e beato in giro per la scatola. Ora, io faccio dei lavori di piccola liuteria e montare e regolare un ponte non è un problema, ma se fosse capitato a chi di liuteria non ne mastica? In fondo parliamo di un banjo entry level che molto probabilmente verrà acquistato da chi si accosta per la prima volta allo strumento.

2) Le viti di fissaggio del risonatore erano lente e ballerine, tant'è che il risonatore stesso vibrava sulla cassa.

3) La tastiera è decisamente secca

4) E, cosa peggiore di tutti, il manico era fissato malissimo, troppo basso rispetto alla cassa, tant'è che suonando le corde dal decimo tasto in poi queste andavano a sbattere contro il bordo della cassa stessa (troppo alto rispetto al manico). Anche in questo caso ho dovuto smontare il risonatore, allentare la vite di fissaggio del manico, regolare il manico, fissarlo e chiudere il tutto.

Ora la domanda è: può la Dean Guitars vendere uno strumento in queste condizioni? Io sono stato in grado di metterci le mani, ma l'utente comune?
Ho un banjo Harley Benton a 5 corde che è costato la metà ma era assolutamente perfetto out of the box, se questo anziché Dean fosse stato marchiato Ikea avrebbe avuto più senso...

Hyvä hinta- ja laatusuhde
15.12.2016
Ostin tämän kitarabanjon, kun kaverini toi vanhan koristebanjon minulle kokeiltavaksi ja innostuin sen soinnista. Itselläni ei ole mitään kokemusta "oikean banjon"
soitosta, mutta tällä kitaransoittaja saa kyllä mielestäni ihan katu-uskottavaa banjosoundia aikaiseksi. Itse olen käyttänyt
tätä äänitys projekteissa lisämausteena ja olen kyllä ollut tyytyväinen. Työnjälki on mielestäni hyvä ja mikä tärkeintä
soitin pysyy todella hyvin vireessä. Sointia en osaa oikein
arvostella aikaisemmin mainitusta syystä.
Hintaan nähden, ihan laatupeli.
