The Rambler Special

Similar to the Rambler Dobson but with a few upgrades.  Available in walnut or cherry, this banjo comes with an aged copper or brass rim in 11" or 12". The softer metal gives this banjo a little warmer tone wile maintaining sustain and projection.  Another upgrade to this banjo is the Pisgah Hawktail tailpiece, allowing for more downward pressure on the bridge making for better clarity on each note.
