The Mini is a for-real, actual Bluegrass banjo that's been scaled down in size to provide pint-sized pickers with a professional-grade banjo. It features an eight-inch diameter head sitting on a rolled-brass rod tone ring, a two-way adjustable truss rod, bone nut, planetary tuners and a geared fifth-string peg. The BG-Mini is tuned to open C (like the fifth fret of a standard banjo).
