The Appalachian

The Pisgah Appalachian is all you need if you are looking for a quality, step-up banjo!  It is a simple, classic, no-frills banjo, similar in features to the Pisgah Possum, but with a rolled brass tone ring instead of persimmon to give a little more punch to the tone.  This banjo is perfect for anyone looking for a solid heirloom banjo that can be played for centuries and doesn't break the bank.
