    Product Description

    Tanglewood TWB18M5

    The Tanglewood TWB18M5 is a 5 string banjo featuring a high grade maple resonator, along with maple sides and neck, a Rosewood fingerboard and maple bridge with an ebony tip for superior sustain.

    The modern banjo comes in a variety of forms, including four- and five-string versions. A six-string version, tuned and played similarly to a guitar, has gained popularity. In almost all of its forms, banjo playing is characterized by a fast arpeggiated plucking, though there are many different playing styles.

    The modern five-string banjo is generally the most popular of the banjo family. The fifth string is usually the same gauge as the first, but starts from the fifth fret, three quarters the length of the other strings. This lets the string be tuned to a higher open pitch than possible for the full-length strings. Because of the short fifth string, the five-string banjo uses a reentrant tuning—the string pitches don’t proceed lowest to highest across the fingerboard. Instead, the fourth string is lowest, then third, second, first, and the fifth string is highest.

    The Tanglewood take all the traditional aspects of the banjo and combines them with modern craftsmanship and production values, to deliver great tone at fantastic value.
