I can't review the banjo, because I don't have it yet. I would like to know when it will ship.
I really love the sound of the Eagle II tenor. It can be subtle and daring, it can growl and it can sing. Since I've bought it my Gibson and B&D tenors are unused, sorry to say. I play Irish traditional music on it, and some classical repertoire. There is not a single thing that is cheap or wrong about it. It is truly one nice instrument. Highly recommended.
