The whole point of putting together a beginner's pack is to provide the absolute novice with all the accessories and literature necessary to start jammin' right out of the box. So does the Washburn B8 Beginner Banjo Pak live up to that ideal? Well, in a word: no. But that's not the whole story.
For the five-string neophyte, the Washburn B8 is a solid instrument, with a loud projecting sound and a relatively playable neck. And the fact that you get a chord book, pitch pipe, adjustment tools, gig bag, strap, and set of finger picks goes a long way in helping kick-start your chicken-pickin' journey. But there are a few things that the folks at Washburn might want to consider when assembling their next "Pak." Owen details what, exactly, in the video demo.
