Top notch - Reviews Aria Banjo Ténor 4 cordes

Aria four strings made in the USA, 19 round boxes. Micro installed after several tests: Shertler cell.

UTILIZATION

Usage on stage for concerts Jazz New Orleans and sea shanties! The sound in the treble is a bit random as to the accuracy, but we must not forget to set the instrument regularly. With its double case, the instrument is heavy (over five pounds) but it's bearable.

SOUNDS

Using 60mm Dunlop picks, the tone is correct at all times. Thicker, the soundman made a wry face (at least) because of the noise on the strings which forces him to cut frequencies. I play with an Irish Agreement (GDAE) not be too much sharper style New Orleans (CGDA). But I much prefer my banjo in the upper midrange, less aggressive.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 14 years and I have no reason to complain. I had two other instruments before much lower quality. This one is perfect for me. I'm not saying if I had a budget of 3ooo balls ... put.
