To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Fast shipping. Arrived well before earliest eta stated. A beautiful instrument that sounds great, has nice weight and feel to it, stayes in tune very well and has a beautiful wood finish. I couldn't be happier with this product. It's well above my expectations. I'm impressed. Thank you
Quick shipping, Item arrived May 24th though initially expected between June 5th and June 26th, 2017. Well packed, with bridge down to protect the head. Gig bag better than expected, with decent protective padding, handle and adjustable shoulder strap. Banjolele built quality and aesthetics better than expected as well. Tuning has low gears for precise adjustments. Quality "Nil--Gut" Aquila strings. Actually adjustable action if you open the pot. Comes with a decent tuner. I gave only 4 out of 5 stars because a banjo strap was supposed to be included in the items described, which I did not at this time receive. All in all a very good bang for the buck.
I took a chance and ordered this instrument a year ago. It is well made and sounds great, which is good for the price point. 1 year later and I still love it and often take it along when I travel! It stays in tune fairly well, comes with decent strings, nice tuning heads. The Back is removable if you prefer an open back. When it ships, just set the floating bridge and tune and your ready to go. My only annoyance, which is why it doesn't get 5 stars, is that I never received the bag and tuner. I sent kmise a complaint and they apologised and said they would ship them immediately...Its been a year, still no tuner or bag. Annoying because I paid extra for the kit but its not the end of the world.The instrument is good, extremely fun and I play it like it owes me money lol. Just buy one
Similar to other reviews I received the package in good order however missing the tuner that was advertised to come with it. The banjo was well packaged and in the case. I would improve my rating if I receive all items that I paid for. Looks like a great little instrument which I am giving as a gift.
