Invented by Sam Ferris

Sam is the American innovator and creator of the instrument you’re looking at, the Tranjo!  If its unusual appearance doesn’t grab you, the real banjo tone will. The most attractive feature is its compact take-down design with headless and removable neck that shortens the tranjo significantly to pack away.

Gold Tone is the manufacturer of many innovative instruments. and now the Tranjo too, which is a natural for one of the most innovative instrument makers today. It has a full scale neck with 22 frets, the tuners are inside the pot and are accessible from the back; It sits in the lap easily, it is lightweight at just around 5 and a half pounds, has no bulky headstock, it delivers genuine banjo tone.. and it fits in a suitcase! There’s really nothing to dislike about the innovative compact tranjo!

This banjo is covered by Beyond Guitars’ 14-day customer satisfaction guarantee and it’s delivered to your door at no additional cost to you in the 48 contiguous United States. AK, HI and Puerto Rico have an extra delivery charge. The Tranjo is designed to be taken down and packed away so there is no case or bag designed for it. Usually a duffel bag or suitcase will be ideal.
