Not Bad for the Money

By Jeremy

from Hensley, Arkansas

Comments about Dean Backwoods 6 Banjo with Pickup:

Played this in the store and was impressed with the quality of sound, playability, and look. I was skeptical of how the electronic pickup would sound and it was better than I expected. However, it was being played through an acoustic amp. It did hold tune and intonation for the short demo within the store. I did notice that it does NOT have strap connectors. Looks like one would have to fabricate an S hook piece in order to use a strap. The bridge piece is quite high but should be able to be shaved down without much effort. I went ahead and purchased the instrument but not the floor demo. I got a new sealed-package from stock in the back. This does take some time to set up. This is a good buy if you're looking for that banjo sound without having to learn the five string chording and picking. The 6 string banjo is strung and tuned just like a guitar. However, you can't play it like a guitar with lots of heavy strumming. You need to pick it and use occasional strums.

no learning curve

By Ryan Bostick

from Springfield, Ohio

Comments about Dean Backwoods 6 Banjo with Pickup:

I just got my Dean 6 string backwoods banjo and I love it. For a guitarist that is wanting that banjo sound quick, this is the way to go. There is no need to re-learn a tuning this comes ready from the start. It also really throws the sound. I was surprised how loud it was (even without plugging it in). A great instrument for a good price.

strings pop out

By liam tahaney

from Yardley, PA

Comments about Dean Backwoods 6 Banjo with Pickup:

I wanted to like this, but you can't use a pick. you strum 1 down strum and the low e string pops out. its not very easy to play. the string tension is very high so fingerpicking is virtually impossible. the pickup wasn't very good either and it didn't stay in tune very well. overall, I didn't like this.

    Comments about Dean Backwoods 6 Banjo with Pickup:

    Everything about this banjo-tar is amazing and can
    really invoke the soul, a great piece with many dynamics and equally pluck friendly. Banjo players may even be more of a rarity then before, as this really bridges the gap to allow guitarist to play banjo style blue grass with ease.
    Info... banjo head is actually clear allowing you to see hardware...really nice plus to the design.
