Details

After taking apart many old banjos from the 1880's and making a variety of different configurations of banjos with Dobson banjos over the years, we have combined some of our favorite aspects of both into this lively and lightweight banjo. It has a shallow 2 5/16" deep hard maple rim that is turned to 3/8" thick, with a Dobson tone ring. The neck length is shorter on this banjo as well, it's not as short as an A scale, but it's what you would find for a neck length browsing through old 1880 banjo cataloges. 25.5" scale. Strung with Nylgut strings. These banjos are too young to sound so old.
