I bought my Grenada back in Sept. 1988. All I can say is, it has delivered the response, power and tone I've needed, regardless of the situation. Jamming, playing shows, recording... anything that this banjo needs to do, it'll do. My Grenada has been consistantly even in tone and sustain. It has always given me warmth, with a certain velvet, if you will, type of tone that has come to be expected from a Grenada. Also, the more drive I put on the banjo, the more it gives back. Also, I've always been pleased with the way the banjo mikes on stage, and in the studio. Now, I haven't played the new Grenadas in the past few years. But, if they have stuck to the same formula they were using in the '88-'92 era, then you won't find a better banjo for the money.
