We are making the first production banjo to be manufactured in Britain for many decades. Not just the first... but in our view just about the best openback banjo you can buy under £1,000! And here's what it sounds like. Thanks to customer John Dow for these great demos.
Join the global banjo movement today...
It doesn't matter whether you want to play like Earl Scruggs or Bela Fleck, or like Steve Martin, or to sound like Mumford & Sons, Abigail Washburn, or anybody else. It doesn't matter whether you want to play Bluegrass, Old-Time, folk, country, jazz, rock or pop. It doesn't matter if you're 15, 25, 55 or 85! It doesn't matter if you want to play alone, or with friends, or in sessions, or to form a band. There are no rules and no restrictions.
And it doesn't matter if you have no musical knowledge at all, or if you've never even picked up a banjo or any other instrument. Heck, it doesn't matter if you don't yet know Bluegrass from green grass. What matters is you want to play the banjo. So, welcome to the new era of the banjo. You're part of a worldwide musical movement, and that's a life enhancing thing to be!
