$1,379.00 $0.00
Unit price  per 

The Barnes & Mullins BJ400 ‘Rathbone’ 5 string banjo combines outstanding quality with a unique and striking appearance, named after Rathbone Place, the home of Messrs Barnes and Mullins in the early 1900s. 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 black banjo head. Geared machine heads ensure improved tuning stability. The BJ400 also features a rolled brass tone ring to improve the volume and projection of the instrument.

In a break from tradition, this Rathbone model is equipped with a Humbucking pickup beneath the Remo head, the volume from which is controllable from a single knob on the side of the instrument. The output from the pickup is through a single jack socket at the base of the instrument.

Today was an exceptional customer experience at Arties music. Bought my guitar their close to two years ago. Had a issue with it and took it in. It was replaced without any of the usual haggle. Thanks Arties. Your service is exceptional and I’ll keep coming back. Highly recommend

Friendly staff and professional service, purchased a Maton Guitar recently and they gave me a great price! Love shopping at Arties!

I used the online order and pick up option for the first time. The level of communication about my order status was great and the music book actually arrived earlier than expected. The guys were busy when it was time to pick up my order yet engaged with all customers so you felt acknowledged while waiting. Really great work team, well done!
