Yes to Recording King.

The cheapest Blue Moon open-back is a fantastic instrument and I don't find it any worse or better than the Deering Goodtime. Frankly the open-back banjo is such a simple design that you can't really go wrong. I've never played an expensive banjo that sounded better than my Blue Moon. Different, yes. Better, no. The playing/touch of the player alters the tone way way more than the instrument. Much more so than with guitars, say.
