Gold Tone was founded by Wayne and Robyn Rogers, two musicians who were in the folk music scene of the 1970s. In 1978, they opened the Strings N’ Things Music Center. Today’s Gold Tone Group started life as Gold Tone Banjos, founded in Titusville, Florida by Wayne and Robyn in 1993. Wayne designed and manufactured Gold Tone’s first banjo, the original TB-100 Travel Banjo and began selling the “Traveler” via mail order. After a wonderful review by Banjo Newsletter, demand for the TB-100 mushroomed. As the company grew, Wayne’s innovations, combined with proven vintage designs, had dealers and their customers clamoring for Gold Tone’s affordable yet high-quality banjos. Gold Tone’s offerings grew to include fretted string instruments of every description including four-string and five-string banjos, six-string banjos (banjitars), mandolin-banjos, Weissenborn Hawaiian steel guitars, metal- and wood-bodied resonator guitars and mandolins.
