How much should I spend on my First Ever 5-String Banjo?

Hi! I am thinking of getting a 5-string banjo but I have absolutely no idea how much I should spend on one. I am thinking of getting either the Maestro 5 String Banjo for £55 reduced from £140 or the Blue Moon 5 String Open Back Banjo. Please help me. Is this the right choice for a beginner? Thank you all!

Washburn makes very nice banjos. You can pick one up for only about $150. If you're handy, you can make your own banjo. I used to own a Washburn but had to sell it, so I made a couple of my own banjos. One is a mountain (Appalachian) style banjo, the other is a cookie tin banjo. That one was incredibly easy to make, and although it sounds different from a bluegrass banjo (it sounds more metallic) it's still fun to play, and sounds good.
