The tone is more mellow than the resonator banjos that are really too loud and too bright for my tastes. The reason for this is due to both the fyber-skin head and open back design. It does have a back but not a resonator. I installed the Schatten BJ-02-STD banjo pickup and sounds great plugged in. I got the Gretsch G2183 Dixie 6 gig bag and am also pleased with its fit and construction. I'm quite happy and glad I decided to go this way. Getting anything else would have much more expensive and less satisfying.
Update: After eight months, I really love this banjo. Stays in tune and just fun to play! I have no training in banjo picking styles, but flat-picking or finger-picking in folk style sounds pretty good to me. Also, strumming gives a new sound dimension to my church band. I have used it unamplified and even tho it is loud, it sounds weak to the people in the back of the church fighting against the amplified band. I am looking for a reasonably priced pickup with volume control to add to the banjo.
