Gold Tone EB-5 Electric 5-String Banjo with Gig Bag
As the five-string banjo has migrated across many genres of music, amplified or electric banjos have increased in popularity. Our EBT/EBM models have been employed by many popular artists (Including Mumford & Sons, and Melissa Etheridge) to broaden and deepen their sonic pallets.
Our EB-5 is a new lower-cost edition, with simple appointments and a penetrating onstage presence. We use a custom-made Remo eight-inch pre-tuned banjo head that needs no tensioning hardware. This choice greatly enhances tuning stability. The contoured maihogany body is well-balanced and features our slimline Canadian maple neck. A stacked humbucking pick-up eliminates feedback problems and our heavy-duty “Terminator” tailpiece will accept loop-end or ball-end strings.
