Gold Tone CEB-5 5-String Cello Banjo

The 4-string cello banjo was originally used in turn-of-the-century banjo orchestras. Now it has been redefined as a 5-string in the Gold Tone CEB 5 Cello Banjo. Tuned an octave lower than standard 5-string, it can be used for classical style, or in a variety of tunings for unique voicings. 

The 14” open-back body is very loud and the brass tone ring extends its punchy tone. The shortened 24 3/4" scale makes fingering easy. It uses nylon high-tension classical strings. Attractive fingerboard and headstock inlays add to the classic turn-of-the-century appearance. Other features include 3-ply tone rim, 32 brackets, armrest and deluxe archtop hard shell case.

We like the CEB 5 Cello Banjo because the sound is totally unique. Sure, you could use it to sound like “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” played at 33 1/3 rpm. But far from a low-octave novelty, the CEB 5’s deep, haunting voice will spark your creativity.
