Very happy with the Banjo

My son who is a professional guitarist says this is a very nice quality banjo. He has purchased items from your company before and thinks highly of the professionalism and knowledge of the musical equipment you offer. I bought it for my husband and he is very happy with it.

Epiphone 5 string banjo-NICE!

As a professional musician,teacher &hobbyist on guitar,I appreciate quality yet affordable instruments. The MB 100 fits the bill.Just a fantastic first banjo.Open back allows for "towel mute" + piece of fabric under strings I practice while we watch TV & no complaints from wifey! Take away "muting" & it has GREAT sound !!

Good starter banjo

I have been playing guitar for over 15 years and recently decided to jump into the banjo world. This banjo plays well with a decent action and the hardware seems on par with a $ instrument. My only issue is that it did not come with any sort of set up instructions. After a few attempts I finally figured it out and haven't looked back since. As always Sweetwater gave me and amazing buying experience and super quick shipping.
