Gold Tone Pat Cloud Banjola Banjo Mandolin Mandola

  • Sale
  • Regular price $1,297.52

With a standard 5-string banjo neck and a teardrop shape mandolin (or mandola) body, the Banjola is a beautiful instrument with exquisite tone and sustain that you won’t find in a standard 5-string banjo.

In 2004, We received an e-mail from Pat Cloud. He had bought a Banjola at McCabes in California and was now residing in Japan working for Disney. Pat was extremely complementary about his purchase. The playability and the sustaining tone was renewing his interest in the 5-string. He said he was planning a whole CD recording of the Banjola, his first in 20 years. He inquired about a pickup and we immediately thought of the possibility of a “Pat Cloud” model Banjola. After numerous emails and discussion, the PC-Banjola was born.

This top professional banjola has many upgrades from our original highly successful Banjola. A wider body, pin style bridge (instead of floating), maple/abalone full body binding, multi-layered veneer back of headstock, rising sun inlay, maple heel cap, and a dual stereo out transducer/magnetic pick up. This is a great stage instrument as the amplified tone is unique and sustaining, and it has a very “fat” tone because of the stereo pick up arrangement.

Texas Guitar Ranch is an authorized Gold Tone dealer, and your instrument comes with full manufacturer warranty.
