Who is this banjo for?
This B&M Rathbone 5-string resonator banjo is the standard for bluegrass playing but is also an excellent choice for other musical styles including country, gospel, jazz, folk, classical and rock. It's the go-to style of banjo for 'Scruggs' players who use three-fingers with fingerpicks on the index and middle fingers and a thumbpick for a fast-tempo and lively style.
Its resonator design means this banjo sounds naturally loud and bright and therefore makes for an excellent accompnyiment instrument.
