A fancy banjo with all the right stuff.

"The B16 has been just what I needed on tour with Miranda, from acoustic practices to arena stages. Everybody on the tour knows its sound since I sometimes roam the hallways picking chase music as I follow our crew around." - Chris Kline, Miranda Lambert

Washburn has been building banjos since the late 1800s. These instruments were considered some of the finest of their day. This heritage is not lost in the instruments they handcraft today. Pros & amateurs alike choose a Washburn for its outstanding tone, build & value.
