Product Description

The banjo is instrumental (pardon the pun) in American music. Originally descended from traditional African instruments, it plays a major role in bluegrass and country and even pops up occasionally in rock, jazz and fusion. Nothing else sounds like it, and it's a fun instrument to play.

Now it's easy to get started playing banjo - Fender's FB300 Banjo Pack includes a Fender banjo, gig bag, strings, tuner, picks and an instructional book. Everything you need to start a pickin' and a grinnin' right now, all in one package.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Fender and Zzounds make a good partnership"
Sound: My husband plays all the string instruments, but banjo is one of his favorite. He had a banjo that fell off the stand and the head broke off. I wanted to replace it with one that he would enjoy but it wouldn't break the bank. This banjo is not too expensive but it is nice and my husband loves it. Feature: It came with a strap and a book. The strap is OK but we didn't need it so it wasn't important if the strap was good or not. Ease of Use: My only complaint was that the bridge was not on the banjo. Initially we didn't notice that the bridge was missing and we thought there was a defect in the banjo...but Zzounds saw the picture I sent them and drew our attention to the fact that the bridge was not on it. Duh! We feel really dumb! We should have noticed, but how often have you looked at something and not really seen it? Quality: Good quality for the price you pay. Manufacturer Support: My husband has a Fender guitar that he loves. We have not had to do business with Fender for any repairs.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Solid beginner banjo. Will get your foot in the door for a reasonable price (compared to other banjos)."
Sound: Sounds like a banjo, but I can't seem to get it as twangy as I would like. I have professionally setup the instrument and it sounds much better than stock. It does not sound as good as my instructors $2000 custom built banjo, but for a beginner banjo, he said it sounds good. Feature: Includes what you need to get rolling. No more, no less. Does include a gig bag, but I would recommend getting a hardshell case. This banjo is nothing special, but its simplicity is the selling factor. You are able to remove the resonator and make it an open back (something I would recommend against as it really effects the tone for the worse in my opinion). Ease of Use: Like I said before, it sounds good, not great, but solid. You WILL have to have it setup properly. I was able to do everything myself in under an hour, but I have worked on my guitars for 12 years and on friends drum sets for 3 years. If you understand the components and how to make basic banjo adjustments, this banjo can sound descent for a beginner banjo. Quality: I do not like the construction of the fretboard. It looks like they filed down the inlay next to the ends of more than half of the frets. The plus side of this is usually on inexpensive string instruments, you can easily cut your fingers on the frets, this is most definitely not the case here. Everything is up to par as much as can be expected for a beginner banjo. Value: A bit on the steep side compared to beginner guitars as many people who will be buying this instrument will be doing so to see if they like playing the 5 string banjo. If you end up enjoying the banjo, it is worth it, if you don't, then it is a bit expensive. The Wow Factor: About as basic as it gets. Nothing special. The inlays are dot, the trim is bland, the finish is shiny. It looks like a very simple instrument. Overall: I am happy with my purchase and will use this for many years. Guitar is my primary instrument and I started with the banjo to work on picking speed. If this instrument breaks, I will upgrade. I will be content with this instrument as I am simply looking for a practice session banjo. I would not play in front of a crowd with it nor would I recommend any one else to preform in public with it.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
