Windsor banjo mandolin.
Here’s a piece of history for ya!
The Banjo mandolin or “banjolin” was designed with the vaudevillian beer halls of the late 19th through early-mid 20th century in mind. With no Electric amplification, volume and projection were the key. I suppose you could say that “in your face” is another way to describe it. With that in mind, I present to you this “large bowl” professional Banjolin is just that. It’s a headache inducing, ear splitting piece of mid range punch. Wanna cut through in your folk ensemble? Wanna get sacked from your Folk ensemble? Wanna annoy your neighbours? Wanna get evicted?…. Well this is for you.
PS everything that should be done has been done
. New Calf skin head
. Set up with hand made bridge

This little girl is a cannon!!!!!..it’s LOUD! And woody and everything besides, the perfect thing to out do those pesky banjo players. As you can see, she still has her original case and the original scratch plate albeit slightly shrunk. We are presently making a replica to compliment the overall vibe.
