The Goldtone story
Gold Tone Banjos, located in Titusville, Florida was founded by Wayne and Robyn Rogers in 1993. Active folk musicians in the 70's and 80's, they opened Strings N' Things Music Center in 1978.
In 1993 Wayne designed the original TB-100 Travel Banjo and began manufacturing and distributing the "Traveler" mail order. After a wonderful review by Banjo Newsletter, the TB-100 became very much in demand. As the company grew, new innovations were combined with proven vintage designs.
Dealers and customers continued to request quality banjos in a reasonable price range and soon Gold Tone's collection included 5 string banjos, 6 string banjitars, mando banjos, 4 string tenor banjos, Weissenborns, metal bodies, resonator guitars and mandolins.
