Description

The ”Perfect” series of banjos were first created by Messrs Barnes & Mullins at the start of the 1900s and formed the very core of the early B&M instrument offering.

Featuring a mahogany resonator and aluminium rim with a Remo WeatherKing head and mahogany neck, Barnes & Mullins Perfect banjos deliver a warm and controlled sound with a gentle and mature response.

Complete with chrome hardware and fittings, ovangkol fingerboard, and modern closed gear machineheads.

Well into the 21st century, original B&M ‘Perfect’ banjos still change hands for considerable sums of money amongst both antique dealers and musicians alike. The modern-day ‘Perfect’ banjos draw on the influence of the original instruments, paying homage to the vision and designs of our founders.

Why should I buy a 5-string banjo?

This B&M ‘Perfect’ 5-string resonator banjo is the standard for bluegrass playing but is also an excellent choice for other musical styles including country, gospel, jazz, folk, classical and rock. It’s the go-to style of banjo for ‘Scruggs’ players who use three-fingers with fingerpicks on the index and middle fingers and a thumbpick for a fast-tempo and lively style.

Its resonator design means this banjo sounds naturally loud and bright and therefore makes for an excellent accompaniment instrument.
