Description

Details

The perfect traveling companion, second instrument or aspiring beginner’s banjo, the Epiphone MB100 has been constructed with the manufacturer’s renowned balance of quality and value. This is not the company’s first venture into banjo creation either, in fact far from it, (Epiphone founder) Epi Stathopoulo’s first patent was for a banjo design and it was from there he led the company to the forefront of banjo design.

With its open back design, this banjo is excellent for bluegrass and string band music, as it has a high level of projection and a mellow tone. This design also makes it lighter in weight than its closed back counterparts, making it easier on the shoulder during play.

Rich and powerful tone

Giving the MB100 its full, balanced tone is the combination of a mahogany body and a classic Remo banjo head, while making play effortless is a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard sporting white dot inlays. The headstock is fitted with a set of Epiphone’s nickel tuners to ensure steadfast tuning and reliability.

The Epiphone MB100 Banjo offers a specification level that is sure to impress everyone from beginners to seasoned professionals. Made by one of the most respected names in the industry!

Perfect starter instrument
Posted on 17/04/2014 by PancakeDisco Okay. So first of all. I play guitar and I recently got into the banjo. I watched a fair share of videos on YouTube and was mesmerized by the sound of the instrument and I instantly wanted to try it. I was particularly interested in the clawhammer style. So, I did my research and I decided I needed an open back - also considering that I had a low bugdet and I wasn't 100% sure I'd keep it up. I had a look at the reviews for various different brands, including the deeing and fender low end models. They just seemed slightly out of my budget and I wanted to lowest of the low but still something that would be nice enough to at least try and keep me motivated to learn.

So to cut it short I ordered this banjo and for the price I wasn't expecting a masterpiece. And of course - it isn't. However, the sound from this thing is perfect. It's loud enough and the tone is so mellow. The action is pretty high closer to the twelfth fret but it will do for a starter instrument. The bridge placing was pretty easy to do out of the box. I doubt I will ever be getting rid of this banjo, it is perfect for travelling and I can't really fault it for the price I paid. Free fast delivery was great also.
