Washburn America’s oldest banjo maker

Brand new Washburn B9-WSH-A 5 string banjo.

Most importantly: we expertly set the bridge to play in tune & well-plus we set the head tension ( no maker does at factory for shipping reasons).  The Washburn B9 is a 5-string Resonator Banjo featuring a Mahogany resonator and aluminum rim, 11″ grooved tension hoop, chrome armrest, traditional tailpiece, and geared 5th string Planetary tuner. Washburn has been building banjos since the late 1800s & most patents are thiers. These instruments were considered some of the finest of their day. This heritage is not lost in the instruments we handcraft today. Pros & amateurs alike choose a Washburn for its outstanding tone, build & value.
