Possibly the world’s only child-sized fully functional bluegrass banjo, the BG-Mini shares many quality similarities to the most popular Gold Tone full size bluegrass banjo, the BG-250F. With a two-way adjustable truss rod, a bone nut, planetary tuners, a geared fifth string peg, and a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, this is a very playable novelty banjo. It has an 8” head stretched across a solid brass tone ring, and puts out a unique tone. Its scale length is 19-3/4 inches and tunes up to the key of C (CGCEG) with standard gauge strings, so when played in it’s open position (no capo) it feels and sounds as if a capo is used at the fifth fret of a full size banjo. If you are playing with others and need to tune to standard G (GDGBD), the string gauges may be changed to the following: .016, .034, .024, .019, .016.
