Endowing the legions of five-string banjoists with a new and compelling voice to add to their music, the mighty CEB-5’s fourteen-inch pot (the largest banjo pot in production today by any maker) with a custom Remo Renaissance head and custom-designed high-tension wound nylon strings on a custom bridge pushes out gut-rumbling lowdown banjo mojo. Tuned a full octave below any of the standard five-string banjo’s many tunings, the CEB-5 looks as great as it sounds.
