Cello banjos have enchanted me.

“Cello banjos have enchanted me. The day I received my Gold Tone CEB-4 and CEB-5 I played them for hours. When I woke up the next morning, I had a pleasant sensation; it was as though the warm tones and vibrations were still coursing through my body. I feel there are limitless musical directions I can go with cello banjos. On the 5-string, I enjoy clawhammer, three-finger picking and creative finger-style. On the 4-string, I play everything from Celtic to Renaissance and Middle Eastern tunes (anything you can play on a mandolin). One of the marvelous things about these instruments is that they have a distinctly different sound from what I previously would have associated with a banjo. Playing them is easy – the nylon strings feel good and yield a distinctive charm to the tone.” Paul Roberts – Cello Banjo Specialist
