This model of Banjo was designed to be played loudly, at the request of a musician performing on big scenes, without risking feedback, or catching other instruments' sound, as it happens with an acoustic banjo.
For this, I imagined a "skin" made of carbon, suspended on a soft material to reproduce the damping of a real skin; Equipped with an Ischell sensor, it produces a sound very close to the acoustics, lined with an electric sound by its micro type Tele.
