What we say

What witchcraft is this - a banjo you can plug in? Surely no-one wants to make a banjo even louder?

well folks, if that'swhat it's come to you the B&M Rathbone is pretty perfect - amplifying banjos is no fun at all and having a built in pickup saves a lot of headaches if you need a gigging instrument. They're lovely banjos as well, very strong sounding and they set up to play very nicely.
