Product Description

Featuring remarkable playability, the B9 is perfect for bluegrass, country or Dixieland chops. Some of the standout features are aluminum tone ring, a Remo head and a traditional tailpiece. With Washburn's craftsmanship and surprising affordability, professional and amateurs alike choose Washburn for its outstanding tone, build and value.

Washburn has been building banjos since the late 1800s. These instruments were considered some of the finest of their day. This heritage is not lost in the instruments Washburn handcrafts today.

Not the best beginner banjo

What is your opinion of this product?
Bought this five months ago. Nice looking banjo but cheap made. Set up is terrible, can't get even tension on the head, the action is too high and the tone is lacking. There are no real banjo techs in my area. I didn't want to spend a lot of money in case I gave up. Learning to play any instrument requires commitment and a quality instrument, the B9 does not measure up in my opinion. I have decided to bite the bullet and buy a Deering.
