Not much to say about this banjo, really - it sounded better than any of the other brands at the same price. Notes have a lot of “pop” especially when played with a plectrum. Holds tune ok, maybe a new set of strings with better wrapping around the pegs might help. Overall - it’s a very simple, great sounding banjo. Recommended.
