Mountain Banjo w/Gig Bag

Mountain Banjo w/Gig Bag

Product Details

We love this mountain banjo. It has such a pleasing size and just the right proportions. The complete lack of metal hardware around the body keeps this instrument clean looking and light weight.

Go with steel strings if you want some punch to the tone. Or get the nylgut strings for a nice plunky old-time sound and feel. And if you really want to go old-time, go for the fretless option!

You just aren't going to find a more playable and pleasing mountain banjo for this price anywhere!

Beautiful wood and craftsmanship. It came perfectly adjusted with nice plunky, staccato nylon strings... the loudness and tone easily tailored by strategically placing pieces of light foam padding behind the skin, for muted playing in the parlor. I find that the Fred Kelly Freedom picks work well and bring out a balanced frailing style sound, for me. I would prefer playing it without a strap and am searching for a way to keep the beautifully finished but slippery round framework from sliding down out of position. I will experiment with foam padding and a elastic strap. I am very pleased with this Mountain Bsnjo, and I look forward to the many hours of practicing the great variety of clawhammer stye tunes, that interest me. Thank you for the care and pride you put into this instrument. It also looks fantastic displayed on my wall. Tom
