Gold Tone Ceb-4/Case B-Stock Only $1049

Photo for Ad 142952

Once a staple in early twentieth century banjo orchestras and clubs, the cello banjo disappeared by 1930. Gold Tone has brought it back, collaborating with string wizard Marcy Marxer to develop the CEB-4 cello banjo. It offers contemporary players a new and fascinating low banjo voice for use in any kind of music. Tuned in fifths, the CEB-4 is great for both lead and accompaniment roles. Its shortened scale makes fingering easier and the high-tension nylon strings provide punchy, dynamic tone while being easy on the fingertips. The brass rod tone ring and fourteen-inch pot punch those low notes out strongly and clearly. Any mandolin, mandola, cello or viola player can pick up the CEB-4 at feel at home in minutes.
