Description

Stumble into the world of banjos, and you just don't know what you'll find. The S.S. Stewart Banjeaurine we have in the store today is just such a find: a nylon, five-string banjo tuned up to Open C. These instruments were immensely popular in the Banjo Orchestras between the 1888 and 1910s, where they were relied on for the majority of the solos in those ensembles. This particular style of banjo was invented by S.S. Stewart himself, and later replicated by many of the major names in the banjo industry of the early Twentieth Century in America. In 1894, you could have purchased this little gem for $50!This S.S. Stewart Banjeaurine has a sweet, warm voice, new head (installed by banjo builder and master carver R.M. Anderson), and a smooth setup--with enough projection to work well by itself or if you're looking to start the next Banjo Orchestra Revival of the 21st Century!

What a gorgeous piece of history. The carved heel of the neck is stunning, and the friction pegs complete the image of a truly vintage banjo, or Banjeaurine.
 
This Banjeurine is a very cool little banjo. It's like having a five-sting uke. It's tuned up to C and it plays and sounds really great. I can see this fitting in to a mix as a completely unique texture. I have a thing for vintage instruments like this one. It would be a great addition to any banjo collection.
