Washburn B9

Jeremy, amazon.com

  • Summary: I could not be happier, this is a great starter banjo. For some one like me that is just starting out, this was a great deal. It will be years before I have to upgrade, if I ever have to!

Wasburn Banjo

  • Summary: The banjo came as described. It was my husband's first banjo, so we have nothing to compare it to. I know it isn't as good sounding as the more expensive models, but it is definately step up from the cheaper student models. Great for the price.

Works for my use, but a few problems

A. Debban "HistoryBuff", amazon.com

  • Summary: When I wanted to learn the banjo, my wife purschased me a B9 as a Christmas present. I have been playing about two years on it, and being a beginner, don't have much of knowledge base to use as comparison. For the most part I am satisfied, but like another reviewer, the fifth fret seems either mis-installed or shaved down. Recently, when it wouldn't stay in tune, I had an acoustic instrument repairman look at the banjo.

The Good, the Bad & the Ugly...

C. D. Potter "BlueRanchRider", amazon.com

  • Summary: Review for Washburn B-9 5-string banjo. I have played guitar for eight years and wanted to try banjo. Having never owned nor played a banjo I decided to purchase this one. Here are the facts... The Good - This banjo came well packaged. It is attractive for an inexpensive banjo and carries the Washburn name. It can sound much better than the way it does straight out of the box with proper setup. It took me half an hour to fully check and adjust banjo.

Excellent!!

  • Summary: I bought this banjo for my wife to learn to play. We love it. It looks great and is easy to play. I tuned it when we received it and it is still in tune. It sounds like an expensive instrument. What a great value. Our friends and relatives think we spent a lot more for it when they see it. I recommend this product highly to anyone wanting a beginner banjo or one to practice on.

  • Summary: This is the first banjo we have owned, so we don't have practical experience with others to compare. But it seems very well-made, and is an attractive looking and sounding instrument.

nice starter banjo - worth that bit extra

Don Panik, amazon.co.uk
28 April 2010
  • Summary: I am not really much of a banjo player - but got hold of a B9 second hand for a good price, and I am really enjoying it! Knowing a few guitar chords in G tuning meant I could more or less pick it up and play it which helps. Mine seems a well put together instrument. The fit and finish is very good. Nice shiny yellowish sunburst on the mahogany resonator - with the finish followed up the neck.
