The Barnes & Mullins Troubadour BJ500M 5 String Banjo is a stunning banjo to behold and a beauty to hear. The name comes from the monthly publication ‘The Troubadour’ issued and created by Mr Barnes and Mullins in 1895. With a figured maple burl resonator, a hard maple neck, and Remo-made head, the bright yet rounded tone is excellent for any style that you could possibly want to play.
When you combine the tone and the beautifully ornate aesthetics, made with antique gold hardware and the figured woods, this instrument becomes the top of the banjo food chain.
