IT-250: Irish Tenor Banjo with Case
"I have an IT-250 and I love it! The IT-250 model has the White Ladye tone ring and it sounds divine: a nice balanced tone with an almost arch top 'ring' for high notes and always a great plunky bass. I play Irish trad with it and it's got plenty of volume. In addition to excellent materials, good build quality, including factory set-up, and have an above average warranty and customer service."
"The parts all appear to be high quality. The woods include hard maple for most models, real ebony fingerboards, rosewood headstock overlay, intricate mother of pearl inlays, and real chromed metal parts, not the easily-tarnished nickel-plated parts. The build is tight and everything seems to be finished off very nicely -- I haven't seen or felt any burs. The tuners work very well, as do the truss rods and twin coordinator rods. Very nice designs and exceptional tone, particularly for the price. I challenge anyone to find a better value for the dollar."
"I heartily recommended the IT-250 -- I would be very surprised if you were not satisfied with it the parts, build quality, tone, and warranty."
