The Gold Tone BG mini plays great and is a great youth banjo for children and kids ages 14 and under It's also a fantastic travel banjo that is small enough to fit in a backpack.
With a two-way adjustable truss rod, a bone nut, planetary-style tuners and a geared fifth string peg, this is a lot of quality for not a lot of money, and it is a very playable novelty banjo. It has an eight-inch head stretched across a modified, hoop-style solid brass tone ring, and puts out a satisfactory tone and volume.
The BG-Mini is a professional banjo and a pint size version of our BG-250F. Many pros have used these in bluegrass performances to the delight of the audience. A rolled brass rod tone ring gives plenty of punch. For kids, this is the ultimate bluegrass banjo.

Possibly the world’s only child-sized fully functional bluegrass banjo, the BG-Mini shares many quality similarities to our most popular full size bluegrass banjo, the BG-250F. With a two-way adjustable truss rod, a bone nut, planetary tuners, a geared fifth string peg, and a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, this is a very playable novelty banjo.
It has an 8” head stretched across a solid brass tone ring, and puts out a unique tone. Its scale length is 19-3/4 inches and tunes up to the key of C (CGCEG) with standard gauge strings, so when played in it’s open position (no capo) it feels and sounds as if a capo is used at the fifth fret of a full size banjo.
