    "Going to Louisian witha banjo on my knee"

    5/5 CindyLou (Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Phitz Banjo Case, Black - PH12988BFL (Electronics) I always remember my grandma singing "Going to Louisiana with a banjo on my knee..."she changed the lyrics a bit...but anyway I will soon be traveling to visit my family in Austria, and I bought a banjo for my uncle that loves country music, I was looking for a reasonable case to carry the banjo on the plane in, and came across this great deal. The material is way better quality than I expected and it has plenty of padding built in so I won't have to worry about it getting banged up while traveling. The zippers are a good quality and it has a great outside pocket to store straps and picks. I am so excited to give this case along with the banjo to my uncle as a birthday gift. I know he will be super excited and ready to learn how to play anything that starts with Willie or ends with Williams. I would definitely recommend this case to anyone looking for a great deal, and good quality. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 29, 2016

    Great rugged case for not a whole lot of money

    5/5 Christopher J. Davis - See all my reviews, August 17, 2016

    Great value - good protection.

    5/5 Spaceman61 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Phitz Banjo Case, Black - PH12988BFL (Electronics) Provides good protection. It is well-made and a great value for a low to moderate priced banjo. I bought an Epiphone MB200 and it fits snugly in the case - which is exactly what you want. To be honest, if I ever a purchase a banjo upwards of $700, I would most likely invest in a hard case. But this case will work perfectly for me - oh and there's plenty of room for books, picks, strap, tuner, etc... Great buy - really happy.

    Gold Tone OT-800 banjo

    After years of playing and building guitars and mandolins, I decided to give banjo a serious look. A few years ago, a customer had given me a Terry Mead open back banjo with a brass tone ring.. I really liked the old timey sound of open back banjo and over the years, I even learned to play a little. Since I retired I thought it was time to play more and upgrade banjos. I read all the reviews on open back banjos I could find and decided the Gold Tone OT-800 offered the most bang for the buck and compared favorably with some high end banjos. I ordered the banjo and it arrived two days later, even with standard shipping. (It shipped from Arizona to California). The banjo was as advertized; excellent workmanship, perfectly set up and a beautiful old timey sound. It came in a nice, sturdy, plush lined hard case. Until the Eastman instruments became available a few years ago, I would never have considered a Chinese instrument. The Eastmans were well made, quality instruments that looked... 5/5 John Bartlett (San Diego, Ca) - See all my reviews, December 25, 2012

    Gold Tone OT-800 FANTASTIC BANJO

    I picked up this banjo to replace my Gold Tone CC-50, an entry level banjo that I learned on for two years. I wanted a more solid instrument, with better traditional tuning pegs and a little more growling tone, and louder.The OT-800 delivers and then some. First of all I got it for a song, $605, on a price drop, so keep an eye on the item and buy low. The banjo is a tubaphone, so it has a metal hoop holding the brackets instead of holes in the pot. The result is a clean, funky look and a strong tone. It is much heavier than the CC-50, but it holds tune forever, is as solid as a rock, and the tone ring give a huge range of sound, from a nice loud growl to a nice ringing mountain banjo sound, especially when played on the frailing scoop.Fit and finish were outstanding, delivery was flawless at the height of the holiday season and I love my new axe. Check it out at nightfrailer at youtube ([...]) you want to hear it, despite my shortcomings in the talent... 5/5 nightfrailer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
