  • The mandolin-banjo should not be mistaken for the banjolin (which has only four strings), though their names are sometime interchanged. The mandolin-banjo is also known by its French name, "banjoline", but should not be confused with the Banjoline designed by Peabody.

  • An eight-string hybrid, having a mandolin neck attached to a zither-banjo type (closed hoop) of from 5.9 inch diameter.  Played mandolin fashion, like the banjolin, it provided a "doubling" instrument for orchestral players who were already familiar with "fifths" tunings.

mandolin banjo tuning - Gold Tone

Gold Tone MB-850+ Mandolin

Gold Tone MB-850+ Mandolin

The Gold Tone Mandolin Banjo 850+ (MB-850+) is a great answer to the mandolin player looking for a new sound. Compared to a standard mandolin, the MB-850+ is louder and has quick response typical of a banjo body. A brass rod tone ring increases volume and the resonator promotes outward projection. Best of all, compared to its vintage predecessors, it retains proper tuning which has always been an issue. Whether you are new to mandolin or looking for a new sound to add to your arsenal, the MB-850+ may just be the sound you are looking for.
