Hello all. I travel a lot for work and I am looking for a more portable option for bringing a banjo with me on a plane. I have looked at the travel banjos. They look great but are tuned in C. I also came across this suitcase banjo. I wonder if anyone here has one and can comment on it. http://m.backyardmusic.com/page/subpage/order-banjos/suitcase-5-string-travel-banjo.htm
What other options are there? My goal is to have something that can fit for carry on. 32 inches or less total length.
I am considering taking up mandolin as second instrument since it is smaller.
