Product Description

The Dojo is one of the many unique instruments Gold Tone has introduced as an alternative to the standard 5-string banjo model. With the cone and biscuit-style design, this model offers banjo players the ability to replicate a resophonic guitar-style tone. The incredible sustain and pleasing tone makes the Dojo a great alternative instrument. The mahogany body provides a crisp tone and can easily be played with a slide. Features include a mahogany body, biscuit-style design, unique body style, rosewood fingerboard, planetary tuners, and a Straightline tailpiece. Whether you are new to banjo or looking for a new sound to add to your banjo arsenal, the Dojo just may be what you are looking for.

I am primarily a guitarist but I have experimented with 5 string banjos over the years. When I saw this instrument up at Elderly Instruments in Lansing, Michigan I was intrigued. Upon playing it, I bought it and sold my other banjos. To be fair, if you are a bluegrass player who performs outdoors, this might not be for you. With fingerpicks on it is loud and crisp but not as loud as a standard banjo. I play it often without fingerpicks and love the sweet tone produced by the resonator and the lovely wood.

A word about the beauty of this thing: pictures don't do it justice. It literally causes people to stop and their jaws to drop. The wood is incredibly well grained and the gloss is fantastic under the lights. It is much better than you would expect from a second line manufacturer like Gold Tone. Gold Tone has really brought its A game here.

I used it for our Christmas program at church and it fit in wonderfully. I played Silent Night, I Saw Three Ships, and other carols that would have sounded brash and loud had they come from a standard banjo. Coming from this beautiful instrument, it fit in the lovely, reverent, other worldly service.
