wonderfull banjo
Conor D., 24.01.2014
i have been playing banjo for several years, and needed to purchase a decent instrument for live performance.

This banjo had lots of great reviews, and completely lived up to everything i have heard.

The Banjo does not come set up, as the bridge would probably break in transit, as it is not fixed, but this is fine as a) most luthiers can do this very easily, and b) the pickup i bought for the banjo was a bridge pickup anyway, so i would have to replace it.

The strings that come on the banjo are not too bad either, though i did choose to replace them after a few weeks with a high quality pack, i gigged with the original strings on at first, and they sounded fine in small venues.

The best feature for me, is that the banjo holds tuning quite well.
Although all banjos are sensitive to heat and cold, which affects the tuning, as the bridge floats on the drum head, once you leave the banjo open (i.e out of its case) in room temperature, an hour or two before performing, the tuners are great quality and it holds a great tune, though i find as the venue flll's up, and gets warmer, you would want to tune up every two to three songs.

Aesthetically it looks great too!
