10 string bluegrass banjo (think 12 string guitar). The strings are arranged in pairs with unisons on the first, second, and fifth string and octaves on the third and fourth. Easily played by any five string banjoist. 9th and 10th string feature a tunnel system under the fingerboard and are tuned at the headstock. The tone is loud and penetrating with added sustain. To reduce overtones Gold Tone has used their extended 3-ply wood rim which eliminates the tone ring and the weight. We have discovered that the 9th and 10th string can be tuned to an interval (e.p. G and D) for a unique sounding drone. Hardshell case included.

Note: Our banjos are individually inspected, set up and tuned by the staff in Georgia.  We are banjo players, so we set them up the way we want to play them!  Each banjo is in tune when we carefully pack it for shipment.  Climate conditions and travel will affect the tuning, so it may need to be fine-tuned before playing.
