Goodtime Americana Grand 5-String Banjo

Product Information

Played with an old time style technique, the Americana is reminiscent of banjos from a period when larger rims were more prevalent which makes the 12" a great setup for playing old time music. A traditional 11" banjo with a frosted top head has a far brighter sound and will "cut" more. Since the combination of the Grand 12" rim and the Renaissance head makes for a wonderfully laid back sound in comparison, the Americana lends itself perfectly for musicians looking to use the banjo to back up a vocalist or another instrument, instead of playing the a lead instrument role.
