Harley Benton LH Banjo - better than expected
Steve59, 20.10.2013
Actually quite a well made banjo, looks good & has geared tuning pegs throughout. The supplied strings are cheap so I ditched those immediately, but that's standard for any stringed instrument I buy.

Sound quality is fine for a beginner instrument & the action and bridge suit me perfectly without having to adjust anything.
The banjo is relatively light but does project sound well.
Overall a surprisingly good instrument for the money - especially as I normally have to pay a great deal more for left handed instruments.

Great banjo for the price
11.03.2016
I bought this cheap banjo as I just wanted to learn a few country tunes as I usually play guitar, I was very surprised by the quality of this instrument, it is well worth what I paid for it and more, I was skeptical but I was pleasantly surprised as it is the only banjo of its kind for under 500 Euro and as I only wanted a banjo for a bit of fun it was right up my alley, I am no expert in banjos as I mainly play guitar but this instrument suited me down to the ground and the sound is sweet and crisp, and it feels and looks wonderful and brought me hours of enjoyment for such a little price, don't be put off by the price

My only complaint though is I noticed there was a slight crack on the underside of the neck when I pulled it out of the box but nothing serious and it still plays fine, all in all a fantastic product for such little price, well done Harley Benton.

The build quality is good for 130? instrument, didn't notice any deficiencies. However it is a cheap instrument and doesn't sound very good. The playability is ok. For a beginner or someone just wanting to try out banjo this would be a great buy, but more serious players should definitely look at more expensive insruments!

Bought as a second banjo
02.02.2017
Ordered it on Jan 27 - Arrived Feb 2nd in Ireland
I had a basic open back banjo as a learner and then got this one.
Sound is fantastic.
Action is lovely. Very little effort required to hold chords.
Hand slides lovely up and down the fret board.
Absolutely lovely looking with the mahogany finish.
Perfect for a beginner or upgrade from a basic model.
I'm sure this will last me until I get to advanced level.
