My new Norma

I've just come into possession of a Norma 5 string banjo. (I'm giving my fiddle a little break as I seem to be at a standstill with it.)
Anyway, what the heck is a Norma brand? It has an aluminum rim, guitar style tuners. Is heavy enough for self-defense.
Google didn't turn up much so it either has no website or it' a sub-company or... of course it might be..no probably is Chinese.

I see the brand is mentioned on this list of Asian entry level banjos:  http://hawthorne.fastie.net/asianbanjos/entry.htm.  Still if you can have fun with it, who cares where it came from?  Just remember, time spent on the banjo is time not spent on the fiddle (that's why I gave up banjo!)  >:D
