We introduced the Clarinbridge to provide an Irish handmade, reasonably priced banjo to the market. This player-friendly model has a very warm tone and excellent playability and is ideally suitable for Banjo players looking to develop and improve their playing skills. The rich mahogany used in the neck and resonator of the Clarinbridge in combination with the brass tone ring is a great introduction to the Clareen range.
