30L Banjo

The 30L banjo is inspired by the good old banjos with a ton of hooks. Do more hooks produce a better sound? They do sound more resonant, not really any more bass or treble- just more presence. More present in sound and in weight, add a tone ring and it is a substantial piece of machinery. The 30L banjo comes with all of the basics of the Spartan, just trade out the 14 butterfly shoes with 30 Buckbee replica un-plated brass shoes.
