Tone as clear as a mountain stream.

The Epiphone MB-200 is a terrific 5-string banjo for beginners that includes all the key features of a professional 5-string banjo but much lighter in weight. The MB-200 reflects Epiphone's 80-year history as a leader in banjo design. At the height of the banjo era in the 1920's, Epiphone had 11 different banjos in production and many of founder Epi Stathopoulo's patents are still in use today and can still be found in our professional banjo line. This affordadble entry-level instrument continues that tradition. It has a mahogany body and neck with a rosewood fingerboard featuring stylish inlays, and a Remo head. All in all, it's a great instrument to get your start on.

Case sold separately.

  • Pleasant Surprise

    As reviewed by Declan Weir on 1/4/2013

    I got this banjo for Christmas this year, after doing online research and comparing one banjo to another, I decided on this one. I had seen it online and already knew what it looked like but when I opened it up I was amazed. The banjo itself is on the heavy side, the neck is small and the tuners face out back, so I would not recommend a wall stand or hanging the guitar by its neck alone. This is my first banjo, but I have been playing guitar, bass and various other instruments for 10 years or so now. Overall it is a pretty awesome, beautiful and great sounding banjo. I would recommend you get it set-up in the shop, as doing it on your own would be a challenge.

  • awesome banjo

    As reviewed by Seth Reynolds on 1/1/2013

    this banjo is really great for beginners. very good sound, and it seriously looks amazing. if you were thinking you could play this without the resonator, you won't be able to bc the rim is not smooth with it off. great banjo though....awesome!

  • Great Banjo!

    As reviewed by Ben on 5/6/2008

    I was pleasantly surprised at how good this banjo looked and sounded. From researching it, I knew I would already like it, but when I saw it in person it was even better. This is my first banjo (other than a very cheap one I had before), but I've been play bass and Guitar for 7 years so I know if an instrument is well made. Obviously this is not the best banjo. There are very small things that are not perfect, but are virtually unnoticeable. For the price of this banjo, you get a lot more than you pay for!
