Description

Each banjo we supply is individually set up in our on-site Banjo Specialist Workshop here at Eagle Music. Any Banjo purchased from Eagle will be fully SET UP, checked for intonation and playability and tuned ready for playing straight out of the box! 

The Phoenix 6 String banjo has a beautiful organic tone that results in warm and well-rounded full notes. When amplified, these characteristics are enhanced by a combination of brilliant highs via the piezo pickup and warm mid range from the Kavanjo®. 

As well as a master volume control, players can dial in the tone even more with the addition of a blend control, the centre position of which is marked with a centre notch. This allows for a seemingly endless combination of Kavanjo® and piezo mix, bringing out the best from both pick ups and truly enhancing the natural sound of the banjo itself.
