Pay tribute to the heritage of Barnes & Mullins banjos with the Barnes & Mullins BJ500M Troubadour 5 String Banjo. Named after the monthly magazine published by Barnes & Mullins in 1895, the BJ500M ‘Troubadour’ 5 string banjo combines outstanding quality with a unique and striking appearance.

This 5 string banjo features an ‘antique’ appearance with a patterned tone ring and flange. A low action and quick neck make this banjo a joy to play. It features a stunning closed back burl maple resonator, which delivers an authentic, punchy bluegrass tone that sounds as great as this banjo looks.
