Advertising of beginner Banjos usually goes something like the following !
JOKE IMMINENT !, ... "Whether you're a professional musician or an absolute beginner, these banjos will be a great addition to your collection !" don't think so.
"With some features you'd expect on a more expensive banjo" ..... Strings ?
Seriously if you wish to progress, steer clear of this style of beginner banjo, poorly constructed, poor sounding, no setup and little or no resale value.
"Beginner" banjos come with many brand names, and a base level construction, below is an easy way of recognising them.
A generic construction base level "Beginner" Banjo
What is the difference between an Artist and an Artiste ?
