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 tones. 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, uncovering a treasure of jewel-like tones along the banjo’s full variable tonal spectrum.
“A great, bottomless sonority comes out of that banjo, ably evinced through your evocative melodies and expert performances. Well done. Takes the banjo in a wholly original direction.” ~Don Borchelt
