Pisgah Possum

This banjo is a dream! It is such a beautiful instrument and I love the way it sounds. I called Pisgah before I bought this instrument and was moved by what a connection the people had with the earth and the trees. They are a progressive group of people, shop is 100% solar, zero carbon footprint, and so willing to talk with me at length. All that aside it is a great instrument sold at a more than fair price. I play it every day and intend to for the rest of my life.

Pisgah Possum

I'm not a very good clawhammer player, but the Pisgah Possum is fun and easy to play. It has a very traditional sound. The fret wires are so low it's almost like fretless. I will be taking a banjo class at the John Campbell Folkschool next week there you taught a banjo making class in February.Thanks !

Service and delivery was very good, however, the banjo needs to be returned to the builder for neck work. Not happy with that.
