Big voice folk instrument that fills the gap between mandolin and banjo.
The Octajo is a double-course tenor banjo tuned an octave below the mandolin. Featuring a 12” rim with bronze tone ring and an octave mandolin neck, the Octajo can be strung with either metal or nylon strings for a choice of dramatically contrasting tonal characteristics.
The Octajo fills a niche in a time when the octave mandolin is gaining popularity. It opens a new tonal spectrum in the banjo and mandolin families of instruments. The Octajo is Gold Tone’s folkternative Octave Mandolin Banjo with a huge voice that will find its way into all kinds of music.
