Perfect starter instrument

Okay. So first of all. I play guitar and I recently got into the banjo. I watched a fair share of videos on YouTube and was mesmerized by the sound of the instrument and I instantly wanted to try it. I was particularly interested in the clawhammer style. So, I did my research and I decided I needed an open back - also considering that I had a low bugdet and I wasn't 100% sure I'd keep it up. I had a look at the reviews for various different brands, including the deeing and fender low end models. They just seemed slightly out of my budget and I wanted to lowest of the low but still something that would be nice enough to at least try and keep me motivated to learn.
So to cut it short I ordered this banjo and for the price I wasn't expecting a masterpiece. And of course - it isn't. However, the sound from this thing is perfect. It's loud enough and the tone is so mellow. The action is pretty high closer to the twelfth fret but it will do for a starter instrument. The bridge placing was pretty easy to do out of the box. I doubt I will ever be getting rid of this banjo, it is perfect for travelling and I can't really fault it for the price I paid. Free fast delivery was great also.
