Firefly banjo review April 4, 2019
Reviewer: Charlie Watters from Portland Oregon  
I love this thing! It has a very plunky loud sound! It is so much fun to play! It is great for traveling. It is also great to leave out around the house because it is easy to pick up and just play for a few minutes. This banjo has helped me to progress in my playing faster. I would go as far as saying this is the best travel banjo on the market!
