I currently play guitar, bass and Ukulele. I had always wanted to play the banjo because of the influences in my life. I tried a bunch of banjos at my local stores and I found a MB-250 in a local store which felt the best for my price range. They didn't have a banjo case to sell me, so I ordered it online with a case. I am very happy with the way the MB-250 plays and feels. I plan on it lasting me years of play.
My musical style is Bluegrass & Country and this banjo suits them just fine! I was very surprised with the sound of the Epiphone MB-250 when I first tried it. The MB-250 has the same quality sound as some of the other "high priced" banjos I have played, and is far superior to others in it's price bracket. For what I paid, you just can't beat it. I bought the banjo online from GuitarCenter.com It took only 5 days from the time I ordered it to the day it was delivered! The packing was pretty good, no damage from the shipping. There was no "pre-setup" done on the banjo at all. I had to do it myself, which wasn't hard and didn't take much time. The neck did have a slight bow in it so I adjusted the truss rod and that took care of it. I highly recommend this banjo, for the price I paid it's a quality instrument. If my banjo was ever lost or stolen I'd have no second thoughts about going out and buying the same banjo right away. I love every thing about this banjo, from the sound to the looks to the price I paid!
I've had mine for 5 years and still can't find any fault with it. In the springtime, on the back porch at the farm in West Virginia it sounds right at home. The neighbors (1/4 mile away) can hear it and have asked me to get it out more often than I do. Bang for buck? It's difficult to beat this banjo.
