Have you always wanted to play the banjo but were intimidated by the difficulty? With our Banjomer, you can have a banjo sound with the ease of playing a mountain dulcimer. The Banjomer has an elongated body with a drum head mounted in the top. There is a large soundhole in the back behind the drum head, giving the Banjomer a big banjo sound. It can be plucked with a "banjo roll" or strummed.
The Banjomer is made of solid walnut. We select choice boards with wood grains that we bookmatch to encircle the drum head on the top and the soundhole in the back. The top, sides and back all have bookmatched wood grains.
Also, rather than dropping a 4-inch banjo headinto the strumming area of a standard dulcimer, we create an instrument around a 5-inch head for better volume and tone.
