The Barnes & Mullins BJ400 ‘Rathbone’ 5 string banjo combines outstanding quality with a unique and striking appearance, named after Rathbone Place, the home of Messrs Barnes and Mullins in the early 1900s. A low action and quick neck make this banjo a joy to play. It features a closed back mahogany resonator to deliver an authentic, punchy bluegrass tone with a genuine Remo black banjo head. Geared machine heads ensure improved tuning stability. The BJ400 also features a rolled brass tone ring to improve the volume and projection of the instrument.

In a break from tradition, this Rathbone model is equipped with a Humbucking pickup beneath the Remo head, the volume from which is controllable from a single knob on the side of the instrument. The output from the pickup is through a single jack socket at the base of the instrument.
