From Gold Tone: The Gold Tone BG-10 is a 10-string bluegrass banjo (think 12-string guitar). The strings are arranged in pairs with unisons on the first, second, and fifth string and octaves on the third and fourth. Easily played by any 5-String player. 9th and 10th string feature a tunnel system under the fingerboard and are tuned at the headstock. The tone is loud and penetrating with added sustain. We have discovered that the 9th and 10th string can be tuned to an interval (e.p. G and D) for a unique sounding drone.
