I am the proud owner of a clareen setanta, custom made to my own specifications it is unique banjo that suits my own style of play and brings me great satisfaction to play and own. I would like to pay tribute to Tom and Fintan for the for the time and patiences needed to produce an instrument of such quality. The attention to detail through tho whole process was second to none and i really felt involved in the whole process. It was a wonderful experience going trough the the whole process and finally seeing the end product. The most satisfying part for me was there ability to set there own tastes aside and completely take on board the needs and tastes of the customer, highly recommended and worth every penny Dessie Kelliher
