This banjo plays easy, bright and loud. This is my second banjo and I am really enjoying the sound of this banjo. The tone ring brings this banjo to life. The fret board is laid out very nice and it's very comfortable to fret. Tuning and itonation is right on. I try different banjos when ever I get the chance and the Deering Artisan Goodtime Special is right up there when it comes to sound quality. Another great thing is it's made in the USA and as expected fitment & finish is very nice. Jonathan at Sam Ash in Charlotte was great to work with during my purchase and they have a great luthier Andy there.
