Originally established in London in the early 1900s, Barnes & Mullins became one of the most famous names associated with high quality banjos. Today, the company reissues some of its most popular models. These instruments allow today's musicians to enjoy a fantastic high quality banjo at an affordable price, developed with the same expertise and attention to detail as they were over 100 years ago. The Barnes & Mullins BJ300 'Perfect' 5 string banjo is a perfect starting point for a new player, offering fantastic quality at a reasonable price. A low action and quick neck make this banjo a joy to play. It features a closed back mahogany resonator to deliver an authentic, punchy bluegrass tone with a genuine Remo Vellum head. Geared machine heads ensure improved tuning stability.
