My first banjo

Looks great, very nice projection. After the strings settled down, it stays in tune nicely.

Washburn B-8 Banjo Pack

Very nice starter banjo. Beautiful finish and great action - very easy to fret and play. It also has a nice, though slightly tinny tone. Also, the book was not included in the package. Minor detail. Instructions should be included on how and where to mount the bridge. For the money this would be hard to beat. I bought this for my daughter who recently got an interest in playing a musical instrument again and is a bit enthralled with bluegrass. She is ecstatic and is playing it every day. I would recommend this for ANY beginner. Great value!
