It's ok

Comments about Dean Backwoods 3 Banjo:

I wanted to start playing banjo for fun. Didn't know much about banjos. Since then I have been playing it. The 5th string is hard to keep tuned since it is not a gear tuner like the rest of the strings. Great starter banjo, but if you have the extra money make sure its a gear tuner on the 5th string.

Comments about Dean Backwoods 3 Banjo:

I bought this banjo for my first banjo. I play guitar and wanted to try something new. Iwanted to get something that was cheep in price so I went with this one and it sounds grate. Just adjust the neck, set the bridge corectly, and put new strings on it an then your on your way.

Great beginners banjo

Comments about Dean Backwoods 3 Banjo:

You can't beat this price for a starter banjo. It doesn't have the most perfect pitch, and you have to tune it often, but I think it's a great instrument for those who are just learning to play. Once I get a lot better, I will invest in a nicer banjo, but this one is a lot of fun to learn on.
