      Product Description

      The Barnes & Mullins BJ304 ‘Perfect’ 4 string Irish Gaelic tenor banjo offers players an authentic Celtic tone at an affordable price. The 4 string tenor banjo has long been associated with Irish and Celtic music, and the BJ304GT is the perfect instrument for this genre.

      A low action and quick neck make this banjo a joy to play. It features a closed back mahogany resonator to deliver an authentic, punchy tone with a genuine Remo Vellum head. Geared machine heads ensure improved tuning stability.

      Please Note: Specifications are subject to change at any time.

      Barnes & Mullins Origins
      In 1894, Mr Albert Mullins and Mr S. Bowley Barnes started “The Jo”, their famous musical instrument journal.

      Specialising in all things banjo, they soon began manufacturing their own banjos as well as importing many other instruments. The original Barnes and Mullins banjos are still sought after today, with collectors seeking them out all over the world.

      Sadly in 1914 at the age of 40, Albert Mullins drowned when the ‘Empress of Ireland’ sank on the St Lawrence River. He was on the home leg of a 2 year sales trip.

      Bowley Barnes continued the business thereafter, and what he had started with his partner years earlier in Bournemouth now moved to Rathbone Place, London.

      In 1976, Mark Barnes – son of Bowley Barnes – moved the business to Grays Inn Road, Bloomsbury. Sadly in 1986, Mark Barnes died. He was greatly admired and respected by employees and customers alike who were quick to tell of his fair and generous nature.

      In 1999, Bruce Perrin – a Director since 1986 – became Managing Director and moved the business from London to the current location – Grays Inn House – a modern 46000sqft warehouse and office facility in Oswestry, Shropshire.

      Bruce Perrin says “We are excited about the future and are constantly looking at ways to innovate and evolve, yet Barnes and Mullins has always endeavoured to put the customer at the top of its priority list”.
