We're producing a very limited number of carbon instruments with Duracoat® two part chemical coatings. Available in Cherry Wine and Aged Bronze.
The Outdoor Banjolele™ is made from carbon fiber composite polycarbonate with radial bracing and an internal stainless steel head tensioning system. We use a full size 11" Remo™ clear banjo head, tenor neck, and a through hole bridge with horn shaped slots. Injection molded in steel molds at very high heat and pressure with carbon fiber strands that give the instrument a natural grain structure, greatly increasing strength and acoustics.
Assembled with nickel or gold plated precision geared tuning machines, D’Addario Pro-Arté Fluorocarbon Strings, chord sheet, and reusable box. Precision horn-shaped string slots have single point termination and provide an unstrained transition to the tuning machines.
