Paul Roberts has been a multi-instrumentalist and career musician since his high school days in the early 1960s. Six years ago Paul became affiliated with the Gold Tone, due to his fascination with the company’s diverse offering of plucked string instruments. Since joining forces with Gold Tone, Paul represented the company as retailer, independent product specialist and design consultant.
Paul enjoys helping people find the right instrument for themselves amongst the many types of Gold Tone banjos, guitar-style instruments, mandolins, ukuleles and basses. In their search for their dream instrument, people have discovered Paul Roberts through his videos on his YouTube channel, his music on BanjoHangout and his Gold Tone website. He is currently promoting the new Gold Tone Octajo octave mandolin banjo.
“It’s exhilarating to work with a company that’s always exploring new terrain in musical possibilities,” says Paul. “The deepest personal benefit for me, in my fortuitous relationship with Gold Tone, has been the influence of Gold Tone instruments on my own music. I play the 4 and 5-string cello banjos CEB-4 and CEB5; a Bob Carlin-designed open back BC-350+; the Soundbird; and, an Octoja octave mandolin banjo,” he says. “I”m looking forward to the upcoming ML-100 Missing Link by Béla Fleck as a great addition to my banjo collection.”
Paul is currently accepting *no-deposit reservations* for the expected December arrival of Gold Tone’s ML-100 Missing Link banjo by Béla Fleck.
