I seek the wisdom of TDPRI. My nearly 7 year old son has asked several times for a banjo. My father-in-law suggested some brands that start at about $1000, which is a wee bit over budget. My sister suggested a $20 Kmart banjo. Well, I have a philosophical objection against bringing "instruments" into the house that can't be used for real music. (Aside from this, $20 Kmart banjo doesn't actually appear to be a thing in Australia). He already has a ukulele which he has taken no interest in, so I thought a 5 string type banjo would be the best option. The cheapest I can see start at just over $150 for Chinese made eBay thing, which is what I'm leaning towards. I played him a few different types of banjo music and he said he didn't like it, but still insists he wants a banjo to do his own thing. What would you do in my situation?
