Oh dear the joys of living abroad I hope you managed to fix your banjos

It sounds great, a very brilliant tone, possible improved by age. There is a bit of a twist in the neck where it was left for years under a bed without the strings slackened but this does not seem to affect playing or sound. It also has a really solid and sturdy feel--something made to last and give service, unlike things today.
No unfortunately it has steel strings but have now released the tension and will replace them with gut strings.
