OVERVIEW

A banjo that'll feel right at home with guitar players.

As the five-string banjo has migrated across many genres of music, amplified or electric banjos have increased in popularity. Gold Tone's EBT/EBM models have been employed by many popular artists (including Mumford & Sons, and Melissa Etheridge) to broaden and deepen their sonic pallets.

The EB-5 Electric Banjo is a lower-cost edition with simple appointments and a penetrating onstage presence. Gold Tone uses a custom-made Remo 8" pre-tuned banjo head that needs no tensioning hardware. This choice greatly enhances tuning stability. The contoured maihogany body is well-balanced and features a slimline Canadian maple neck. A stacked humbucking pickup eliminates feedback problems and the EB-5's heavy-duty “Terminator” tailpiece will accept loop-end or ball-end strings.

Comments about Gold Tone EB-5 Electric Banjo:

sorry,but this was not a good buy, i kept it but was not impressed, for that kind of money it should have been better, pick up hums bad, not much tone adjustment sound is dead in the upper frets, i have been playing for a long time giving lessons for 30 years. thought it would be fun to play an electric but their is on quality in this banjo at all. you would get better in a 99.00 rouge! may send it back!
