I play a Deering Goodtime Special, and it's nice, But I wanted an open back that I could take on the road and on camping trips and such. I was planning on buying another Deering. I happened to stop in at my local music shop and I saw this banjo sitting there. I picked it up and started plinking away, and liked the way it felt. I liked the way it sounded. I liked the way it responded. I liked the way it looked. I really just liked it a lot in general.

There was no price tag, so I assumed it would be around $400 or $500. I asked the guy, "just out of curiousity", how much it was.
When he said $210 plus tax, I said "there must be some sort of mistake".
He went on the computer system to ensure he quoted me the right price, and indeed he had.
I said thanks, and started to walk out, then turned back, picked it up, plucked away for a minute and said "Dammit, I've gotta buy this".

I haven't put it down much since I bought it. It's a nice banjo to play, it holds tones nicely, rings true, allows for slides and hammers and bends, etc and the intonation seems good. I have spent a bit of money on banjos, and this is my third one.
I even like the strings that came on mine!

If I was just starting out, I would go back and start with this one. I recommend it to both noobs and experienced players who want a light, inexpensive travelling/camping/partying banjo. Great for learning on, and great for jamming on. It's obviously a little more quiet than a closed back deering, but when you're sitting around a campfire plucking away without finger picks, it plays at a nice, enjoyable volume for all around.

As far as "value for money" goes, 5 stars.

EDIT, Spring 2013

I have still been plucking away on this and loving it.

I borrowed this thing from a friend for about 2 months and fell deeply in love with it. This banjo has a deep, dark tone, and being a medium priced beginner's banjo it sounds AMAZINGGGGG if you know what you're doing. I'd experimented with a vintage head on it and threw on some nylgut banjo strings and man this thing can chime better than anything I've heard. If you've got the right set of strings it CAN do a tinny sound for a banjo if you play close to the saddle, but other than that it's dark as can be. I'll upload a video eventually of just a few chords.

Most instruments that come at such a low price for beginners look, feel and sound just as cheap as their price tag. The MB-100 however sounded AMAZING right out of the box (after the required bridge setup and tuning). I'm new to the banjo and I'm sure a seasoned banjo player would be able to find things they don't like, but I sure can't. It is a little on the quiet side, so if you're looking to really project, you may want to pick up a model with a resonator (the back) but for what I'm doing, this is perfect! Hope you all enjoy yours as much as I do!
