Washburn has been building quality banjos since the late 1800s. That heritage is not lost on today's Washburn B11 banjo. Pros and amateurs alike choose Washburn for its oustanding tone, quality workmanship and overall value. The B11 is a 5-string instrument with a traditional tone ring. Featuring a Remo head, 24 tension brackets, a mahogany neck and resonator, die cast tuners and more, the details really help this banjo to outshine many of its similarly priced competitors.
