Description

The Mini 5 fretted gourd 5 string banjo is a small,  tenor uke size, 17″ scale, 5 string banjo tuned to open G  just like its counterpart. Played the same but smaller. Great for travel as it fits one of my uke gigbags*(available on the accessories page). It uses a special set of banjo strings so the feel is similar to the big guy. Check string section for additional sets.
