Old timey banjo—perfect tone and look.
The Old Tone OT-800LN is based one of the most sought-after banjos of the "classic" period (1890 to 1930) when the Boston School of banjo making was the highest expression of the art. The pot sports a pre-WW II-style Tubaphone tone ring, which adds pleasing overtones via a square-section brass tube mated to a solid brass rod, all encased in a turned brass sleeve.
This all sits snugly on an eleven-inch maple rim equipped with dual coordinator rods (for easy action adjustment) and is topped with a Remo Renaissance head carrying a maple and ebony bridge. A No Knot tailpiece anchors the strings. The authentic bracket-band carries the bracket shoes without the need to drill holes in the rim, increasing the OT-800's power and sustain. The extended maple neck has a bound ebony fretboard inlayed in engraved vintage style, and has a scoop at the pot for the hardcore clawhammer player. A deluxe arched top hard case is included.
