    Customer Reviews

    Ross, I just wanted to let you know, you weren't exaggerating about the bang for the buck of this banjo. I took it down to Guitar Center to compare it with several Deerings, two Tennessee Crafters, and a Gibson Mastertone selling for close to $4000.These banjos were probably not set up that well and they had old strings, but somehow my bg250f blew them all away especially in volume. I took a friend and he agreed that mine sounded better and louder. I walked in there thinking I would be humbled by the expensive banjos. Like I said though, they probably needed set up. I picked up a Deering Sierra and it put out very little sound; it was pitiful… Thanks for steering me to this banjo; I've learned 7 songs so far and am hopelessly hooked on the banjo. Best Wishes, Carbaugh Mann

    Thanks Ross, Got the Banjo today and I love it. I have been playing it and it is a dream. Good tone. Nice and loud. John


    .....I went to IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Trade show on Fri and played quite a few banjo's while I was there, I again walked away real happy with my BG250F F. I'm glad that I trusted your judgment and bought it. I hang out with a lot of songwriters and musicians and everyone I've showed it to was impressed with the value and also the deluxe TKL case that came with it. The action is great and it plays like a dream.

    Customer in Italy who bought a lefty BG-250

Ross! I wish you all the best and again thanks alot. Emanuel.

    Ross – the Gold Tone GB 250F arrived yesterday and it’s everything you said. What a great banjo. I just hope I can do it justice by learning to play it! Thanks again for calling me from Australia to answer a couple of neophyte questions. I didn’t expect you to call from the land down under! Great customer service! PS – Kathy was great as well, very personable and helpful.

    ...... BG 250F customer in Australia....G'day,my banjo arrived today. Absolutely fantastic. Can't wait to have a crack at it. Thanks for your input in helping me select a good banjo and your patience. Hope all is well and have a great Christmas. Graeme.
