Travel Banjos - Smaller light weight banjos that make traveling with your banjo easier. The banjos in this category are not only for adults on the go but excellent for children learning the banjo. The travel banjos either are the mini size with the 8 inch head or 11 inch rim with shorter 19 fret neck that can still be tuned to Open G. The banjos featured here are portable banjos that weigh less, can fit into an overhead compartment on a plane or can be carried on your shoulders anywhere for easier practice.
There are two sizes, one that has the normal 11 inch drum head size but 19 fret neck instead of a 22 fret standard length neck size like the CC 50 Traveler, TB 250 Travel Banjo Deluxe, CC OTA beginner clawhammer style banjo and the CC OTA old time banjo. The other banjo alternative for kids or for traveling is the 8 inch drum head size with the smaller neck scale like the BG-Mini, CC-Mini, and The Plucky, There is also The Tranjo which is can be taken apart and put in a suitcase.
