Banjo Eléctrico - Brazilian Banjo
Standard tuning D-G-B-D
The banjo replaces or complements the acoustic cavaquinho, especially in Pagode music and in smaller Samba ensembles, where the cavaquinho can't be heard so well amongst the other percussions instruments. The Brazilian banjo is tuned just like a cavaco, but sounds much more present and louder due to its larger body. It has an 8" goatskin resonating skin that additionally amplifies the tone. Because the banjo has a bigger body than a cavaquinho and is built differently, too, the banjo naturally weighs a bit more than a cavaco.
This professional banjo by Rozini convinces by its high quality making, very nice workmanship and a loud, mid-emphasized, very balanced and warm sound. The neck has a very strong, but pleasantly playable D-profile. The built-in piezo ensures stage suitability!
Height incl. bridge 10cm
Height without bridge 8cm
