    Not really a banjo but it's fun to pick out tunes on it. I play it flat like a dulcimer.

      Comments about 5-STRING BANJO:

      I bought this banjo to play with my friends. I read the two reviews and thought it would be a great purchase. It is. I was surprised by how small it was. I don't know why I thought it was going to be bigger but it does not make a difference in the performance of the instrument. It is a bit hard to tune but I got it in tune and it plays great. There is no fine tuning but for a beginner instrument that is just fine. I really love it.

        Couldn't have asked for a better gift for my husband. He's always said he wants a banjo and this one is great. For the size and being made of wood, it sounds like a real banjo.
