The B50 from Ibanez is a 5-string banjo featuring chrome covered tuners, a chrome armrest, and a single coordinator rod for neck adjustments. The instrument offers a rich voice which is attributed to its mahogany rim, mahogany neck and resonator, and rosewood fingerboard.
Drawing on the time honoured tradition of bespoke folk instrument manufacturing in the Southern states of America, Tanglewood Banjos are handcrafted in authentic, period designs. This allows players of all abilities to find their perfect model, based on both specification and price point. Union series instruments are tailored to meet the needs of the entry level to intermediate player representing features and quality far beyond most instruments amongst their industry peers.
After researching the Folk instrument market further we noticed that there was a need for affordable niche products to allow the budding George Formby to hit the instrument ladder and serenade their window cleaner or the next Eric Clapton to pick up a resonator and get playing. With that in mind Tanglewood designed the ukulele banjo and resonator you see below offering great specification at affordable prices.
