Back to Banjos

This Banjo is built from an old, Victorian 12.2 inch 24 bracket overspun rim.

With the neck I went for flamed Maple and Ebony with a really chunky profile and a Dobson heel.

The banjo has a thin goat skin and is strung with BADGB strings from a classical guitar set for tuning to dGBDG (Low Reuben tuning) and has a ton of bass!
