Tranjo

The Tranjo is the most unique traveler ever made. The patent-pending design by Sam Farris impressed the Gold Tone folks at a trade show and we licensed the design. The neck is completely detachable with the turn of one thumbscrew, and it fits in a suitcase. Best of all, it has a full scale and a great bluegrass tone for practicing. The tuners are located inside the banjo pot, directly beneath the banjo head, and are accessible from the back of the instrument. The body design fits comfortably in your lap and its weight is balanced. Since acquiring the license, we have now made the Tranjo affordable and a welcome addition to 5-string players’ collections.

  1. Just got my new Tranjo through Angie’s Banjos. It came in pristine condition. Took me a few minutes to tune it up, but then it played just fine. Not quite used to the tuners yet, but that will come with time. The sound is a little different, but nothing that won’t keep me from playing it. I have a Stelling Bellflower as my performance banjo, and the Tranjo is what I will practice with alot. One of the reasons I got it, last year I went to Kaufman Kamp and the airline lost my banjo, yes, my Stelling. It went to Washington DC and Chicago without me. I finally got it back and I heard from Janet Davis about the Tranjo. I did some research on the internet and Angie’s Banjo had the best price. I’m off on vacation for the next 10 days, and yes the Tranjo is going along. Serious banjo pickers should really consider getting one of these, if they travel. The gig bag will be okay, but the Tranjo is going in my carry-on bag on the way home. Lots of padding around it too. Thanks for making a quality product that is affordable and gives us an option for travel. We don’t have to leave our banjos at home anymore because they weigh too much or are too bulky
