Here's your chance to win a new Bantronic “Ether” Electric Banjo. Play acoustically, or achieve a new dimension of sound when plugged in! The single-coil pickup amplifies the pure sound of the strings as the tone is shaped by the drumhead, giving the Ether its otherworldly timbre.

Play effortlessly up and down the ergonomically-correct neck, where the cumbersome fifth peg has finally been moved to the headstock for a more intuitive and comfortable playing experience. Learn more here >
