The success of the Gold Tone CEB-4 Cello-Banjo got Gold Tone president Wayne Rogers thinking, "Hmmm...what about a FIVE-STRING version?" Thus, the CEB-5 was born! Endowing the legions of five-string banjoists with a new and compelling voice to add to their music, the mighty CEB-5's fourteen-inch pot (the largest banjo pot in production today by any maker) with a custom Remo Renaissance head and custom-designed high-tension wound nylon strings on a custom bridge pushes out gut-rumbling lowdown banjo mojo. Tuned a full octave below any of the standard five-string banjo's many tunings, the CEB-5 looks as great as it sounds. The Canadian maple neck is finished in rich sunburst and the tastefully-bound peghead and ebony fretboard as well as the heel cap are fully bound. Play the Big Five under an Old Time ensemble to add a bass feel, play Scruggs-style three-finger rolls for an added dimension to Bluegrass or Newgrass styles or play the CEB-5 clawhammer-style (HUGE fun). Includes hard shell case.
