The Stagg BJW-OPEN5 Kentucky open back 5 string banjo is a perfect instrument for anyone looking to learn bluegrass or folk style banjo.
The BJW-OPEN5 holds its tuning better and has improved sound projection than other branded banjos.
The most important component of any banjo is the head. Very similar to the skin of a snare drum, it is from this that the banjo gets its 'twang'. The head on this instrument is manufactured by Remo, the leading manufacturer or drum and banjo heads worldwide, and is one major factor in what makes this a fantastic sounding instrument.
