Gold Star Banjos

Since the late 1970’s, Gold Star Professional 5-string Banjos have successfully filled the void left in the market by the lack of good quality American-made instruments with that traditional sound made famous by legendary players like Earl Scruggs, Ralph Stanley and later by the likes of J.D. Crowe and others who continued to push the musical envelope even further.  Gold Star Banjo was there when the Bluegrass Album Band featuring Tony Rice, J. D. Crowe, Doyle Lawson and Bobby Hicks single-handedly snapped the music world back to its traditional roots with that unmistakable and hard driving sound that had been lost. When you play a Gold Star, you know you are playing the best banjo that your money can buy and a finely tuned instrument that was purpose-built to provide that vintage tone and to drive the music the way it’s supposed to be.
