Banjo Studio Eléctrico - Brazilian Banjo
Standard tuning: D-G-H-D
The banjo replaces or complements the cavaquinho, especially in a Pagode or in smaller samba groups, which often require a bit of reinforcement because of all the percussion instruments. The Brazilian banjo is often tuned like a cavaquinho, but its larger body and resonance skin makes it sound much louder and more present than a cavaco. It has an 8'' goatskin resonance head, which further amplifies the sound. Since it is larger than a cavaquinho and built in a different shape, the banjo naturally weighs a little more.
Simple banjo by Rozini with no extras, which still convinces with a beautiful sound and nice workmanship. Mid-toned, balanced and warm sound. Built-in piezo makes it suitable for stage use.

In Brazil, people not only play drums and percussion:
The most common instrument is probably the acoustic guitar. No matter if traditional 6-string guitar or like preferred in Samba and Choro with 7 strings, ROZINI has the righ instruments.
