Awesome banjo!

By John Storrow

from Boston

I had a very expensive Wildwood banjo for a while and it buzzed and weighed a ton so I sold it a few years ago. Recently I got the Recording King OT25 and I love it not only for the reasonable price but the sound is even better than the Wildwood!. Very easy to play for a relative beginner like me. No need for a resonator, the sound is plenty loud, crisp, warm, and no buzzing. It doesn't sound or feel like a toy at all.. Well made with tuning pegs that seem sturdy and precise. It doesn't have the fancy in-lays but hey, its all about the sound and playability anyway which I think the OT25 has in spades (meaning a lot in my opinion) I'd keep writing but I'd rather play my Recording King 0T25 thanks
