Gold Tone OB-250AT Orange Blossom Banjo Arch Top w/ Case

Regular price $1,599.00

.
Another great Orange Blossom pro-grade banjo, this one features a superb bell brass forty-hole arch-top (or raised-head) tone ring, like the ones in the G-word banjos made from the late 1920s into the 1930s (instead of the flat head ring). This tone ring produces a sharper, more incisive tone that's useful for cutting through the random noise being produced by the other members of your band. Seriously, though, if you love the old Stanley Brothers recordings and Dr. Ralph's signature tone, this is the banjo for you. All other features are as per the OB-250. Available as left-handed model for additional $55.
