About This Listing

Hugely popular during the heyday (1920-1930) of mandolin and banjo orchestras and clubs, the cheerful tinkle of the banjolin floated at the top of the range and usually carried the melody. The Gold Tone MB-850+ is our faithful homage to the banjolins of yesterday, built with the materials and know-how of today.  

The eleven-inch banjo pot assembly has a brass tone ring for maximum projection and the maple resonator is easily removed for open-back playing. Available as a left-handed model.
