Sometimes, compromising between price and quality makes selecting the right banjo difficult. The Fender FB-55 Banjo is designed for players who expect terrific sound and features with excellent affordability. It’s a beautiful instrument, with a maple rim, mahogany back and other fine appointments that give it an elegant look and bright tone. It has all the twangy bite you expect from a fine banjo, making it excellent for bluegrass and country, and even for Celtic music, jazz and pop.
The tone ring makes a major contribution to a banjo’s tonal character. This brass tone ring is rolled rather than cast, produces clearly ringing tone with great volume and brightness, and doesn’t weigh a banjo down too heavily.
There’s just something about the look of a banjo with a mahogany resonator—it’s so gorgeous that it has to somehow make the music that much more beautiful.
Value meets beauty in elegantly stylized position inlays that impart a touch of stylish sophistication to the fingerboard of this finely appointed instrument.
