Sound Quality
Low E a bit dull, but otherwise bright and loud. I've been a player for the last 35 of my 50 years and like the sound. I find myself using my right hand to dampen the sound and it works well.
Reliability/Durability
I will be using this live in the near future, it seems worthy. The tuners are smooth and seem to hold well. Fit and finish are fine.
Price/Value
General Comments
For the money, a fun addition to my batch of toys. I have a Gibson CL-45, a Liberty Copperhead resonator, a '61 Gretsch Clipper, a mid-70's Tele and a P-bass for home recording. I like this instrument quite a bit, it's fun to play and stays in tune. It's fun to finger pick and loud. I never have played a 6 string banjo before and sort of took a risk on this one. I'm not disappointed. If it were lost or stolen, I'd probably buy another, unless I had an unexpected windfall..the I'd buy a Deering. I think it's a good instrument for the money.
