The fullness and warmth of the larger rim is further enhanced by the addition of a 12” Renaissance head which beautifully complements the banjo both visually and sonically. Also features a frailing scoop. Further details below.

Plays very well. This is my 3rd banjo, this is great for me as I’m 6ft3 and the bigger pot on this banjo suits my size much better than a standard smaller pot. The small head is lovely, it keeps the banjo in balance. Many banjos have a heavy head peace which makes the banjo want to tip or fall over. Playability and dimensions of this product are tip top. Easiest banjo to play, beautiful sound. Couldn’t fault this banjo at all.

This is a lovely instrument. I requested railroad spikes to be fitted during set up. Can't put it down at the moment. Very pleased.

Beautiful banjo and a lovely sound. The wood quality is very good and it plays really well. A couple of parts like the 5th tuning peg feel quite cheap, but overall I would say it is good value for money. Very glad I got the model with the scoop- it looks great; now I just have to learn how to play clawhammer properly!
