Gold Tone CEB-4 Marcy Marxer Signature Cello Banjo

 

The 4-string cello banjo, originally used in turn-of-the-century banjo orchestras, gets a new look and design with the Gold Tone CEB-4, designed for folk and traditional specialist Marcy Marxer. Tuned in fifths (CGDA—same as a cello), the CEB-4 allows mandolinists, cellists, violin or viola players to play immediately.

 

The 14" body is very loud, even without a resonator, and the brass tone ring extends its punchy tone. The shortened 24 3/4" scale makes fingering easy, especially since the wider neck uses nylon high-tension classical strings. The headstock and inlays are based on early serpentine designs. Additional features include a three-ply rim, 32 brackets and arm rest. The neck and rims are finished in a medium walnut stain. The CEB-4 includes a deluxe archtop hard shell case.

 

Why We Like Gold Tone Banjos

We know a comparable, traditional American banjo would cost a lot more—if you could find one. The Gold Tone lets you get that same traditional look at a much more affordable price. Well made and carefully set up, great tone and playability, we think Gold Tone offers real value.
