I hope this goes here, but anyways... Do you plug electric banjos into guitar amps, or do you buy banjo amps, or what??? I'm thinking about buying a banjo, so I need to know.

no, i just didnt know, ive onli played one banjo and it was without an amp, didnt like it, just wondering if there was such a thing

but in that case, then i imagine that a guitar amp would work but someone probably makes banjo amp

banjo amps probably exist somewhere, but there are probably very few, as electric banjos are very few themselves. i would just try with an acoustic guitar amp.

Plug it into a Mesa triple rec and post results please. Remember to turn the gain to 11

^Lol

Yeah take a banjo to a store, check some amps out, i'm sure a regular guitar amp would go.

Or go one step further and plug into a Spider III. Turn to Insane channel. Lulz will be had.

There are general purpose "acoustic instrument" amplifiers. SWR makes an entire line of them. for gigging situations I imagine that the house PA system is a bit more ideal. But if you really wanna put it through an amplifier any acoustic amplifier will do.

Fishman Loudbox

Fender Acoustasonic

Behringer has a whole series of them

Roland Acoustic Chorus 60

there are plenty

Keyboard amp or an acoustic amp will do the job perfectly well.
