As soon as it was in my hands I knew this Pisgah banjo was the instrument for me. It has a rich, warm tone, like another voice that sings along while I am singing, & yet it is bright, perfect for playing in a group without getting overpowered. I love every detail of the design, from the wood used to the inlay & the hardware. Being from the mountains of North Carolina myself, it means a great deal to me to have a banjo from my own home place.
The Rambler Dobson has everything I’ve been looking for in a 12 inch pot. It’s loud enough without being overpowering, and the Dobson tone ring provides a nice balance between treble and bass. The scoop is an exact fit for my right hand, too. I love the look of the stainless steel rim and brass hardware. The walnut neck is a sustainable local hardwood. I’m really happy with my Pisgah Rambler banjo!
"We have toured and played the Pisgah Banjo possum on our stages for many years. It has a beautiful simple aesthetic and a deep bellow sound that I love, and a warm richness that is the quintessential sound of our style of hollow-back banjo playing. Subtle, soft, and full. I also love telling people the story of its local North Carolina origins. Thanks Patrick and Pisgah Banjos for making such beautiful instruments."
I love my Pisgah Dobson Rambler. I was teaching a workshop and one of the participants brought his for me to see. I put it in my lap, played just a phrase of a tune, stopped and said, "I got to get me one of these!" It has a "pop" that is undeniable. I went to Elderly instruments a few months back and played about every open back banjo they had out and when I came across a particularly beautiful sounding banjo, I would sit and do a side by side with the Pisgah Dobson Rambler they had in stock...and it came out on top every time! I know tone and sound is subjective, but in my opinion, it was the BEST sounding banjo they had and that I have played! Wonderful instrument, looks, sound, and playability!
