Tanglewood have worked tirelessly to acquire their worthy reputation as master of their craft, and the TWB 18 M5 5 String Banjo is a shining example of what they are capable of.
Tanglewood spared no expense in the design and build of the TWB, employing high grade maple, the most resilient and refined appointments, and marrying everything together into a single harmonious composition. Tanglewood didn't just strive to make a model that looks good though, focusing their efforts towards integrity of tone with drive and projection to match - a winning combination that all players seek. In order to achieve this, maple has been employed throughout the build of this model. Highly regarded due to its efficient resonant properties that allow it to generate excellent projection with full bodied tone.
The resonator is also crafted from maple, as is the shell. Reinforcing the power and projection are the 18 brackets upholding with absolute assurance. As this beauty ages, the resonator is only going to sound better and better as it develops an enriched character.
