Gold Tone Cello Banjo Model CEB5

The Missing Link - Béla Fleck

Béla Fleck and I both knew the Missing Link was a winner. Within a month he’d recorded with it on five of the tracks on Abigail and Béla’s duet album (which debuted at #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Bluegrass chart). Béla then showed the ML-1 to Steve Martin, who was so intrigued with its sonic possibilities that he ordered one immediately.”

Gold Tone President

When Béla Fleck showed Steve Martin the Missing Link baritone banjo, Steve was so intrigued with it's sonic possibilities that he immediately called Wayne Rogers at Gold Tone to order one.

 

For those of you who don't know yet, the ”The Missing Link” fills the void between the frequencies of a normal 5 string and cello banjo. Listen here .......(Tuning is dropped to CGCEG)

Inspired by John Hartford’s love for low-tuned banjo, Bela Fleck conceived the Missing Link, Baritone Banjo. 

Bela’s previous experience with the Gold Tone Cello Banjo brought him to Wayne Rogers. The two collaborated in the design and, after many months of experimentation and various challenges, we are ecstatic to present the ML-1.

Gold Tone Octajo Octive Mandolin Banjo

Octajo Octive Banjo Mandolin

Gold Tone is introducing an octave mandolin-banjo. The Octajo is a double-course tenor banjo tuned an octave below the mandolin. Featuring a 12” rim with bronze tone ring and an octave mandolin neck, theOctajo can be strung with either metal or nylon strings for a choice of dramatically contrasting tonal characteristics.

The Octajo fills a niche in a time when octave mandolins are gaining popularity. It opens a new tonal spectrum in the banjo and mandolin families of instruments. The Octajo is an instrument with a huge voice that will find its way into all kinds of music.

I've been working with Gold Tone as a retailer, independent product specialist and designer for many years and it's a thrill to have been asked to bring out this new instrument. I'll be receiving one soon and will update with videos and more information as my Octajo and I get to know each other.

New Soundbird Banjo

Click here for Specs and Options on the Soundbird 

The Soundbird is a new 4-string banjo designed by Wayne Rogers of Gold Tone and Paul Roberts. Optimized for nylon strings the Soundbird features Paul's innovative Neck-Lift design, which liberates a colorful palette of timbre-rich tone. By raising the fingerboard 3/8-inch above the head and aligning the strings on a parallel plain with the head, the Neck-Lift makes the strings fully accessible between bridge and rim, and uncovers a treasure of jewel-like tones along the banjo's full variable tonal spectrum.

 

Soundbird Price :

$969 (free shipping to lower 48 US states)

New Adam Hurt CD!

Earth Tones CDEarth TonesAdam Hurt's new solo gourd banjo CD!Review 

recorded co-produced by Paul Roberts of Banjo Crazy.com 
Order on cdbaby.com

Spirited old-time tunes from North Carolina, intricate melodies from Kentucky and other intriguing music.

Adam Hurt’s solo gourd banjo CD, “Earth Tones,” is a groundbreaking achievement. The celebrated banjo virtuoso’s first solo album is a daring foray into the mysterious world of the gourd banjo - the predecessor of the modern banjo brought to the colonies by African slaves hundreds of years ago. “Earth Tones,” offers a glimpse into another time through the ethereal lens of a true maestro.
