Entry level banjo with potential but lacking

Phlebas, 23.01.2018
This is my edited version of a review, as some shortcomings have been found on closer inspection.
The banjo looks nice and it sounds great and plays well.
Shortcomings I have, after the splendor of the new and the joy is somewhat gone, have to determine. The processing is not exactly as I first assumed. Inside the rims are adhesive traces of the Recording King label to see - not so bad.
What is worse, unfortunately, is that the Rim has a crack, which should not be so. There are a few places where the finish is not 100% and there are sometimes noses, sometimes small quirks. The tension ring also does not seem to be exactly exact to me and the biggest drawback is the j-hooks, which are used to stretch the fur. They are so soft, or inaccurately worked that some just do not reach. So it is only partially possible to adapt the instrument to your own wishes.
It is a pity, because I find that really very appealing, but 249¤ are not exactly little money. Therefore, the finish could be more accurate or the parts of higher quality. I'll exchange mine and buy another banjo in the slightly higher priced segment so I can enjoy it longer.
If these shortcomings were not ... the sound and look are great!

Good banjo.

04.04.2017
I think it's a good instrument.
This morning the lord of UPS came at 9 o'clock in the morning, and he caught me freshly raised without smoking and without having coffee, so at first glance it seemed to me that the banjo was bringing the iron hardware quite plain.
After smoking my morning cigar and drinking coffee, I thought it was wonderful, and I remembered that as it is called Dirty, it has to have that dirty, authentic, clear touch!
It is from those instruments that you look at them and think, "OHH an old banjo," teleports you to another era, and you see yourself with a rocking chair, shotgun, plaid shirt and spittoon on a Yankee porch.
Recording King is a good brand, just make bluegrass instruments.
This may be the most economical model of Recording King but it's still a good banjo.
The mast is a wonder, of maple. They say that the maple gives you sharper tones. The hoop is multi-layered, is thicker than the bodies of mahogany or born other banjos barathos and that's a good thing for a banjo.
It is light, perfect for traveling, to play on the street, and to learn.
With Harley Benton's nails coloring sounds great, I love it. I am grateful for the shipment, it came very protected in its box.
